Abstract [en]

The railway is a very safe transport system mode. Most of the killed and seriously injured on the rail tracks have been trespassers. Majority of collisions with victims occurs in areas and routes with a capacity deficiency on the railway lines. The Swedish Transport Administration's measurements show that the number of hours of delay due to trespassers on rail tracks increases every year.

A research and innovation project has been carried out to test a new method with intrusion protection on the rail track with the aim of reducing the number of pedestrians killed and injured as well as reducing delays in train traffic. It is also a significant work environment issue for both train drivers and other categories of professionals in the railway industry. The intrusion protection consists of rubber panels that are difficult to walk on. The material is used in several other countries in Europe as effective intrusion protection at locations along the railway to prevent rail tracks trespassers.
