This Guideline on the Consolidation of Public Level Crossings has been developed to provide nationally consistent protocols for the consolidation of public level crossings.

The purpose of the Guideline is to assist in eliminating and/or reducing the level of risk for all users at public rail, road and pedestrian level crossings on the Australian rail network, in all jurisdictions.

Achieving a reduction in risk through consolidation is achieved by the elimination or reduction of the road-rail-pedestrian interface risks on a rail network. This reduces the exposure and impact to level crossing users.
