Pacific National launches level crossing safety campaign following tragedy

Pacific National has responded to the New Year’s Eve incident by launching a new level crossing safety public campaign

Freight rail operator Pacific National has announced a new public advertising campaign regarding level-crossing safety following a recent tragedy with two of its workers.

On New Year’s Eve, two Pacific National workers passed away when a truck collided with a train in Bindarrah, South Australia at a railway level-crossing.

In memory of the pair, Pacific National has announced the roll-out of its public advertising campaign to further educate communities on railway level-crossing safety.

“Level crossing safety is critically important, and this campaign builds on existing industry and government campaigns that run annually,” PacNat says in a LinkedIn statement.

“Don’t take a chance, take a look.”

The concept behind the campaign is to remind the road transport industry that a train can’t swerve nor quickly stop, with care needed when vehicles cross level crossings.

“It can take up to two kilometres for a fully loaded freight train to stop,” the campaign says.

“Cross with care at level crossings so we all go home safely, every day.”
