Level Crossing Safety Research and Innovation Project - Round 2

ClosedGrant Closed: 5th of April 2024 - 11:30 pm Value: $10,000 to $500,000 Run By: Australian Government Department of Infrastructure, Transport, Regional Development, Communications and the Arts Further Information: https://www.grants.gov.au/Go/Show?GoUuid=2876615e-6370-4c39-b76b-10db3da39f07

This Level Crossing Safety Research and Innovation Project grant opportunity is part of the Regional Australia Level Crossing Safety Program.

The objectives of this grant opportunity are to:

  • support the research and investigation of new technologies and approaches to improve level crossing safety, particularly lower-cost technologies and those that are suited to regional areas;
  • support the risk assessment, trial and/or introduction into use of innovative and/or lower cost level crossing safety improvements and improvements to train visibility at level crossings. This may include activities to evaluate the reliability of a technology, consider its effectiveness at  addressing risks and consider any unintended consequences and how to mitigate against them; and
  • provide a sound evidence base to support future decision-making around level crossings, such as understanding human behaviour around level crossings and drivers of behavioural change in order to better target safety treatments and other interventions.

The intended outcomes of the grant opportunity include:

  • a greater range of lower cost options being available for stakeholders including state and territory governments, rail infrastructure managers, road managers and rolling stock operators, to adopt to manage level crossing safety in regional areas;
  • the safe functioning of the integrated road-rail system into the future; and
  • providing publicly available information about the most effective strategies to improve level crossing safety.
