Network Rail

The railways are safe when the rules are followed. But every year accidents are caused by those rules being ignored. 

Whether it’s taking a short-cut home, graffiti or being drunk, people ignore the rules of the railways every day and put their lives at risk, as well as risking the safe running of the railway. We work with the public and communities to alert them to the dangers.

The safety of people on and around the railway is our priority. Education is key, especially for young people.
