The Department continues to develop its response to the Law Commission’s recommendations on the reform of level crossing legislation.

Initial discussions with stakeholders have raised a number of concerns which the Department will need to consider further.

This is a highly complex area and we must ensure that any amendments to the legislative framework do not adversely impact on the UK’s position of having the best level crossing safety record in Europe.
