The 13th International Level Crossing Awareness Day will be taking place ONLINE on 10 June 2021.
Network Rail and the International Union of Railways (UIC) are pleased to co-organise an online international conference to launch the 13th International Level Crossing Awareness Day. The online launch conference will be held online on 10 June from 14.00 to 18.00.
This conference attracts railway industry representatives, road authorities, academics and many others from around the world working to raise awareness of the dangers of level crossings.
The ILCAD 2021 worldwide campaign will be maintained in a scaled-down format, similar to 2020, due to the pandemic. Around 40 countries typically participate in the campaign, either by publicising it on their websites or on social media or by organising a range of activities around ILCAD.
The theme of ILCAD 2021 is “distraction” with the motto, “Distraction kills!”.
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.
