Level Crossing Removing
Removing level crossings for greater security at intersections between roads and rail lines
- Location : Whole network
In order to reduce dangers due to intersections between road and rail traffic as well as to improve traffic flow, the CFL have set themselves the goal of removing level crossings and replacing them with lower or higher crossings for road traffic.
The CFL launched studies for the realisation of level crossing removal projects, often in collaboration with the Administration des Ponts et Chaussées, the communes in question and other administrations in order to improve traffic flow by means of alternative pedestrian and bicycle paths. Only a removed level crossing is a safe level crossing.
The main level crossing removal projects recently completed or under evaluation are located in the communes Kiischpelt, Schieren, Mersch Lorentzweiler, Steinsel, Walferdange, Luxembourg, Mamer, Steinfort, Differdange, Bettembourg, Kayl, Dudelange, Rumelange, Dippach and Contern.
