The Federal Government’s Regional Level Crossing Upgrade Fund (RLCUF) is set to deliver vital upgrades for level crossings across the state, increasing safety and saving lives. 

The RLCUF aims to improve railway crossing safety in regional areas and reduce serious and fatal crashes that have a devastating impact on communities.

The Federal Government has committed $160 million over four years to State and Territory Governments to fund up to 50 per cent of the cost of delivering railway crossing upgrades.

The New South Wales Government will receive $28 million in the first round of funding, which will go towards a program of works across the state’s regional road network and be delivered in partnership with rail infrastructure managers.

The proposed list includes 23 priority projects for railway crossing improvements across nine electorates covering a large area of regional New South Wales.

These upgrades include the installation of retro-reflective boom gates, audible warning devices, updated signage and LED flashing lights increasing the visibility of crossings on both sides of the roadway in response to approaching trains.
