The Rustenburg Local Municipality in partnership with the Railway Safety Regulator (RSR), notwithstanding other stakeholders that participate in the exercise such as the South African Police Service (SAPS), has since the beginning of this week embarked on the National Rail Safety Campaign in Rustenburg, at level crossings.
The Railway Safety Regulator is launching the National Rail Safety Week from
26th – 30th November 2018 for the first time in South Africa to intensely promote rail safety messages for one week every year. The objective is to reduce collisions and create more awareness, given the statistics on the State of Safety Report and the fact that there have been challenges with level crossings, people struck by train and collisions.
The Rustenburg Local Municipality believes that much still needs to be done to educate our communities on safe railway behaviour to curb the unacceptably high levels of fatalities at our level crossings.
