Brisbane's at-grade railway crossings

... an audit of a typical installation Historically, many of Brisbane’s Citytrain railway stations and lines are located in geographically flat areas. Typically, this means that “at-grade” crossings are the most practical means for motor vehicles, other vehicles (notably bicycles), and pedestrians to cross the lines (ie at intersections) and where as is often the case, again for historically practical reasons, also gain easy access to stations which were typically located near such crossings. This “audit” is aimed to illustrate both the practicality of these types of facilities, and what is needed to improve them. As they are reliable, safe and make access for almost all users of a railway system relatively easy, they are very “convenient” and cost effective.
