11th Level Crossing Symposium organised by EJRC The Global Level Crossing Symposium (GLX) is a forum that brings together safety professionals from around the globe in order to exchange information and provide experiences and lessons for improving the way in which the interface between the road and rail systems is managed at level crossings The first GLX was held in 1990 as a result of an initiative of the US and now GLX is a biennial event held each even-numbered year. The previous event, GLX 2008 was held in Paris and attracted about 170 delegates from 5 continents. Participants of the symposium have been from the road sector, the rail sector, police and law enforcement agencies and government agencies. We are very pleased to advise you that the 11th GLX Symposium will be held in Tokyo, Japan. One of the most important themes, preventing accidents at level-crossings, is considered as coming from cooperation between the rail and road sectors, road administration agencies and users of the level-crossing. Accordingly, the theme of the 11th GLX Symposium will be ‘Toward further improvement of level crossing safety - Coordinated Approach and Individual Efforts’.

Level Crossing 2008 will be the global event of the year that takes an in-depth look at the issues surrounding one of the biggest risk areas facing the rail community – that of third party intrusions (trespass) and the road/rail interface at level crossings ;

Held biennially, previous events have attracted delegates from all the over the world. These have come from the roads sector, the rail sector, police and law enforcement agencies and government agencies. The official dinners have always been filled to capacity and a resounding success in giving a world class networking opportunity.

Level Crossing 2008 will be as successful and popular as ever. It will include a three day conference with keynote presenters and technical papers on a range of issues from human factors to technical and engineering solutions, through to latest developments in intrusion detection and prevention. There will be an exhibition, exhibitor and product demonstrations, an official dinner, and a delegate and exhibitor networking evening.

Level Crossing 2008 will give you access to the latest insights into thinking surrounding the management of level crossings from colleagues on both sides of this critical interface between road and rail and will allow you to debate and discuss the direction for dealing with the key issues with the leading players.

The conference will feature addresses from a wide range of international speakers and dignitaries from the road and rail sectors as well as from the world of politics and policy-making. They will bring a perspective of best practice, new technologies, political thinking and project updates from around the globe.
