It's been a busy year so hope everyone is able to take some time out over the break before 2018 takes over our lives once again. Enjoy the long hot summer.

The event aims to put the spotlight on the importance of rail safety and encourage safe behaviour around tracks and trains.

In Tawa the particular focus is increasing awareness by pedestrians at the four crossing level rail crossings in Tawa.

Key safety messages for pedestrians
• Every time you’re near railway tracks, be alert. Trains can come at any time, from either direction.
• Only cross at formed pedestrian crossings or an overpass or underpass.
• Remove your headphones, stop and always look both ways for trains before crossing the tracks.
• Only cross if you are sure there are no trains in sight.
• Obey the warning signs at the crossing – if lights are flashing or bells are ringing it means a train is approaching.
• If a train has passed or is stationary at a station, always check both ways again to make sure another train is not coming. Two tracks might mean there is a second train.
