Status Open / In progress
Occurrence Person entrapped in lowered CCTV level crossing, Ashfield, Offaly, 24th May 2020
Occurrence Date 24 May 2020

Basis for Recommendation

It is noted that two-thirds of the previous incidents of members of the public (MOPs) becoming trapped in the barriers of level crossings occurred at either Sydney Parade (LC XR004) or Serpentine Avenue (LC XR002),, as a result the RAIU make the following safety recommendation (AO-03):


IÉ-IM should conduct a focussed review on the instances of MOP entrapment at Sydney Parade (LC XR004) and Serpentine Avenue (LC XR002) with a view of identifying any actions that can be taken to prevent the re-occurrence of MOP entrapments.
