09 Jun 2021 - 11 Jun 2021
The 12th ILCAD campaign will still take place on 11 June 2020. This will see the publication of a press release about level crossing safety that ILCAD country partners can publish via social media etc.
The ILCAD launch conference will be postponed to 2021, however. It will now take place on 10 June 2021 at the National Railway Museum in York. It is wonderful place that displays a large collection of locomotives and other items of rolling stock, virtually all of which either ran on the railways of Great Britain or were built there.
Network Rail will also hold its annual Level Crossing Innovation Day on 9 June 2021. There will be a social event on the evening of that day; on Friday, 11 June 2021 there will be a technical visit.
ILCAD spearheaded by the UIC draws railway industry representatives, road authorities, academics and more from around the world – aims to raise awareness about the dangers associated with the road/rail interfaces (level crossings).
ILCAD is a joint commitment that began in 2009 with ELCAD (EU countries + Israel). Since then, UIC has been coordinating this worldwide event to raise public awareness about the dangers at level crossings.
This year the 2020 conference and worldwide campaign will not have a focus on specific topic in particular. But, look to highlight how a person’s behaviour affects how the use and interact with a level crossing with the “Beware the Bubble” concept. We want people to understand when they are “in their bubble” so they can burst it and see the dangers and risks more clearly.
