SELCAT - Concept of Level Crossing Safety Performance MonitoringRoman Slovak, Technical University of Braunschweig

Safer European Level Crossing Appraisal and Technology

International Railway Safety Conference 2007

30th September – 6th October, 2007, Goa

selcat project motivation
SELCAT project motivation
  • Level crossings are connected with the highest human fatality rate of European Railways (50-80% of all railway fatalities)
  • Not adequate human behaviour is main reason (>90%) for the accident causes without involvement of the safety system failure
  • High safety requirements on the level crossing safety system in many European countries are connected with high costs hindering technological upgrade of existing systems
  • Relatively small number of fatalities in comparison to other road transport accidents results in insufficient human danger awareness and lack of legislative regulations to stimulate the drivers discipline

aims and objectives of selcat 1
Aims and objectives of SELCAT (1)

To provide a knowledge base for the improvement of the level crossing safety by an analysis of results of safety-related projects from FP5 and FP6 with regard to Railway and Road Transport

To provide an overview of existing and planned level crossing research and improvement activities in 15 countries from Europe, Asia and Africa

To analyse incident and accident data and databases related to worldwide level crossings

To disseminate the results of in SELCAT (Workshops, Web portal)

aims and objectives of selcat 2
Aims and objectives of SELCAT (2)

To set up a common level crossing accident information system

To propose a standard for reporting level crossing accidents in European countries

To examine the potential for existing and new technologies to improve the safety and the performance of level crossing systems.

To investigate the applicability of available risk and cost-benefit analysis methods for the classification of technological solutions for the safer interface of rail and road traffic at level crossings

steps of the level crossing risk appraisal
Collection of LC types (country specific)
    • Functional configuration
    • Operational conditions (traffic flows, infrastructure conditions, etc.)
    • Population (country specific)
    • Pictures
  • Collection of LC accident statistics (LC type specific)
    • Fatalities, serious and light injuries
    • Accident causes (human, technical, etc.)
  • Definition of basic LC types
    • Specification according to the ERA draft definition
    • Association with related national LC types
  • Accident statistics analysis
    • Definition of normalization (scaling factors)
    • Comparative risk evaluation for basic LC types
Steps of the Level Crossing Risk appraisal
integration of statistics data
Integration of statistics data

LC types population (by year)

Accident statistics association (fatalities, injuries, causes on road and railway side, etc)

Typical traffic conditions

LC types costs (acquisition, operation)

normalisation of statistics
Normalisation of statistics

Basic scaling factors

Population of the particular level crossing type in the country NLC

Length of railway network of the country LRN

Train operation volume given in millions of train kilometres VTKM

Number of inhabitants per square kilometres of the country

Road passenger in million km per year VRKM

Number of cars/1000 inhabitants

Number of road fatalities

Number of railway accidents

Population in millions

Total number of LC accidents

normalisation data
Normalisation data

Composed scaling factors

ERA LC safety indicator

Other scaling formulas, e.g.

Wherby:

NLC Population of the particular level crossing type in the country

LRN Length of railway network of the country

VTKM Train operation volume given in millions of train kilometres

VRKM Road passenger in million km per year

conclusions
Conclusions

SELCAT concept of safety performance monitoring aims at:

  • collection of available LC accident statistics under consideration of national operating conditions
  • interactive analysis of the statistics by
    • providing information about the extend of accident damage
    • and accident causes
    • offering large number of normalisation factors (predefined, user defined)
    • visualised by time based charts (LC specific, country specific, EU/NonEU, etc.)
  • providing input for further SELCAT work
    • Identification of most critical LC operating conditions
    • Identification of typical causes of LC accidents
    • Offering statistical base for application of advanced methods for risk and cost-benefit evaluation
  • future aim: Level Crossing accident information system allowing collection of accident data including detailed operation conditions and causes
