Keep off the Tracks
Network Rail has launched launch a national campaign to raise awareness of the growing issue of trespassing, especially focussed on teenagers aged 13-18. It aims to raise awareness of the key railway safety message – 'keep off the tracks.'
The campaign is in response to the continued increase in rates of trespass upon the network. Unfortunately, when schools are closed there's usually a spike in railway trespass incidents and each year they see hundreds of people taking risks on and around the railway, resulting in tragic consequences and life-changing injuries.
Network Rail teams work round the clock to make sure that boundary fences are secure. If you see a broken or damaged fence, please report this immediately, and if you see someone trespassing on the railway, call the British Transport Police on 0800 40 50 40 or 999, or text 61016.
