Pedestrains are still getting restless while waiting at Lincoln’s level crossings and risking their life.
Network Rail has released CCTV footage detailing a group of three climbing over the High Street barriers and crawling under a stationary train.
Moments after all three got to the other side, the train began to move off.
The incident happened between 1.40am and 1.43am on April 4 of this year.[button url=”https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PupdjAvX258″ title=””]Watch video on YouTube[/button]
Incidents like these are one of the main the reasons Network Rail is investing money into two pedestrian bridges over two of the busiest crossings in the city.
Phil Verster, Route Managing Director for Network Rail said: “These individuals had a very lucky escape.
“Because of the length of freight trains the driver had no way of seeing the reckless actions of this group and pulls away just seconds after they emerge on the other side.
“These images reinforce the need for us to take action at both level crossing sites in the city to provide safe access over the railway with no possibility of contact with trains.”
