Abstract

This paper reviews the literature concerning the risks associated with Highway- Railway Crossings (HRC). The aim of this study is to evaluate and validate previous investigations conducted in the United States and Canada. The main issues addressed in this paper are: a) Identify HRC with potential the average collision frequency or collision severity as black spots, tests that are used to identifying hazardous location and compare the methods, b)Identify the contributing factors to safety problems at an identified HRC location, c)Identification of countermeasures to address the contributing factors. This research has thrown up many questions in need of further investigations on risks associated with HRC to mitigate the accident frequency and injury severity.
