    Abstract

    This document presents the main results obtained from evaluation of the piloted measures implemented in WP5 of the RESTRAIL project. The final list of tested measures was: - Warnings signs and posters (Spain), - Railway safety education programme (Spain), - Education in schools for 8-11 year old children (Finland), - Video enforcement and sound warning (Finland), - A combination of measures at Aydin station (Turkey), - Mid-platform fencing (United Kingdom), - Societal collaboration to prevent railway suicides (Sweden), - Gatekeeper programme (Germany), - Gatekeeper programme: "Contact with a (possibly) suicidal person" (The Netherlands), - Computer based training (Israel), - Forward Facing CCTV (FFCCTV) in trains. The main purpose of these evaluations was to estimate quantitatively the effect of all these measures or combination of measures on railway suicides and (fatal) trespassing accidents. In addition, two of them have pursued mitigation of the consequences of these events on train traffic. A set of general conclusions about the results gained for the evaluations can be found at the end of the document, as well as several recommendations.
