New £730,000 risk model for level crossings

Network Rail has produced a new risk model to help predict danger at level crossings and make them safer as a result.
The new system, developed by risk management specialist Strategic Thought is called the All Level Crossing Risk Model (ALCRM)There are 7,600 level crossings in the UK, conforming to 12 different types, and until this new system there was just a single risk assessment model which applied to protected public road level crossings only.The new system allows crossings to be ranked, so that resources can be allocated accordingly. The team used algorithms, written by Arthur D Little, to determine the risks involved on each unique crossing.
