RSSB Tackling Rail Trespass Risk

RSSB and Department for Transport funded research by Greenstreet Berman and The University of Nottingham to understand the motivation for trespass on the rail network and how this differs geographically and temporally across the UK. The overall aim of the project was to develop guidance to enable industry to select the best approaches to prevent trespass. The output of the work led to a range of guidance materials, such as how to conduct trespass risk assessment, how to select interventions and then how to measure their effectiveness. This guidance is available for free on the RSSB website, for more information follow this link.
