Conceptual and Final designs for reconstruction and upgrading of the existing level crossings

Realization: 2002 – 2010

Level crossings are always recognized as dangerous places, i.e. ''black spots'' on which numerous traffic accidents have been reported.

Since 2002 when the Serbian Railways PE has launched the program for development and upgrading of the unsecured level crossings, the Institute of Transportation CIP prepared complete design documentation for more than 30 level crossings within the Serbian Railways Network.

The basic principle governing the safety estimation on level crossings is  number of traffic incidents reported. Methods for fulfillment of this requirement are different and depend on the both present and required safety of every particular level crossing

The design deals with three aspects governing increment of traffic safety on level crossings: construction, electro-technical and traffic measures.

Construction works include modification of road elements (road widening, construction of footways, correction of the road reference level), modification of pavement structure followed by development of both substructure and permanent way of the line in the level crossing area. Solutions developed during the last five years were mostly based on application of advanced materials such as rubber panels.

Electro-technical devices may operate either mechanically or automatically. Dependent on level crossing location, automatic devices may be controlled remotely, by using adequate control signals or may be activated by pushing the relevant taster. Any automatic device shall be provided with the following: instrument house, semi-barriers, level crossing signals, switching on-off elements and relevant cabling system.

Traffic-technological requirements include placement of relevant traffic signalization.

Designs for level crossing development also include traffic operation technology to be applied in the course of execution of works.
