Drivers and pedestrians are encouraged to take their time around railway crossings as part of a new national advertising campaign.

Regional Development Australia Yorke and Mid North says the campaign pushes the message: ‘Slow down. Look. Listen for trains.’

This forms part of the Federal Government’s $180.1 million Regional Australia Level Crossing Safety Program, which aims to improve safety around crossings in regional areas.
