rail safety education

At Arc Infrastructure, we believe that delivering the rail safety message is just as important as teaching our children how to cross a road or to wear a helmet when riding a bike.

Each year there are around 1000 near hits at level crossings and more than 5000 instances of trespass and vandalism reported on rail networks around Australia, with many more going unreported. Sadly, a large number of these instances involve young people.

As a transport infrastructure manager in Western Australia, Arc Infrastructure is committed to ensuring the safety of the communities that surround our network.

Through our Rail Safety Week education sessions, community partnerships, regional shows and various communications activities, we endeavour to educate school students and the broader community about the importance of acting safely around the rail network.

We are also working at a national level to address this issue. As a member of the TrackSAFE Foundation, we contributed to the development of the TrackSAFE Education resources, the first national rail safety education initiative for primary and high school students.

Track Splat!

In 2014, we launched an innovative rail safety game Track Splat! designed to engage young people in rail safety in a fun and interactive way. 

The game is centred around three characters and rail safety ambassadors Jack, Scout and Albie, each with their own unique personalities.

The game communicates and reinforces key rail safety messages, showing consequences of correct and incorrect behaviour, as children help Jack, Scout and Albie find the safest route to cross the train tracks and avoid other hazards.
