Network Rail: 'Trespass is just not a risk worth taking'

Figures show that despite most people agreeing it’s dangerous to trespass on railway tracks, a third believe they would hear a train in time to move out of the way.

This increases to more than half of 16-24-year-old males.

Too many people think they would hear a train in time to move clear - tragically we know this isn’t the case.

The sound of a train approaching is much quieter than you would imagine, with the wheels pushing noise out sidewards, rather than forwards, and distorting what you hear.

Trespass is just not a risk worth taking.
