Being aware around trains and tracks is the key to being safe – that is why signage is essential! Without these signs people would not be aware of the dangers and risks involved with these areas.
Rail Safety Week aims to raise more awareness about rail safety and encourage safe behaviour around trains and tracks.
It is focussing on two major concerns - the safety of pedestrians in urban zones and motorists’ safety in rural areas.
The week is planned and coordinated by KiwiRail in close association with TrackSAFE NZ, NZ Police, NZ Transport Agency, Auckland Transport, Transdev Auckland, Transdev Wellington, Greater Wellington Regional Council, NZ Automobile Association and local councils throughout New Zealand.
