Tag Archives: level crossings
Recently I asked myself the question – how does a bike path cross a railway? When a road does the same thing, a level crossing has to be built – but I had to look to the Netherlands to see what a level crossing for bikes looks like.
On the railways of Russia I saw plenty of signs warning against walking on the tracks, but it appears that nobody pays any attention to them.
Russia’s fastest train is the Сапсан (Sapsan) which links Moscow to Saint Petersburg at speeds of up to 250 km/h (155 mph). It entered service in December 2009 on existing railway tracks, which raised safety concerns in the villages along the way. So how did they react?
