Forchbahn level crossings

filed on: 16.02.2011 (16th Feb 2011)

With new level-crossing legislation coming into effect in 2014, 47 crossings on Forchbahn fail to comply with the new standards. Of these, 26 will be modified and 21 closed. For some of the crossings that are closing, new access roads will have to be built. All crossings currently secured by only flashing lights will have to be fitted with barriers. Each crossing will cost 500,000 to 600,000 Franks, of which Forchbahn will have to cover more than half from their own funds.

It is regrettable that there are motorists who are unable to recognise the meaning of a flashing light, and one wonders how they deal with other road traffic situations.
