REPUBLIC OF TURKEY MINISTRY OF REPRESENTATION 2006 20 Research Area 1: Rail Handling (Continued) Project No: 9

1. Project Description:
Investigation of accidents in Level Crossings, Determination and Modeling of Security Enhancing Measures.
2. The goal of the project:
TCDD's financial losses due to accidents and delays in train services as well as the prevention of fatal, injured and financially damaged accidents at the railway crossroads of the highway
3. Selection Reason:
In level crossings, very frequent and mostly fatal traffic accidents occur. As a result of accidents, delays occur in TCDD trains. high cost repairs are required for locomotives and wagons. With the model to be developed, the probability of accidents in the level crossings will be determined and will help to determine the level crossings that need to be improved.
4. Project Steps:
? The investigation of the records of the accidents at the level crossings, Classification of level crossings,
? Monitoring of drivers and performing traffic counts by means of video images at level crossings? Development of the model,
? Test of the model.
5. Budget Items:
Video camera, assistant staff, software development service.
6. Format of Results:
Considering the results of the model; Level crossings, which need to be improved, will be determined and improvements will be made within the budgetary facilities and accidents will be reduced.
