Lingwood Primary safety poster initiative

New safety initiative launched by Community Rail Partnerships and Network Rail

The Bittern Line and Wherry Lines Community Rail Partnerships have teamed up with Network Rail to promote safe use of level crossings.

Children in Norfolk and North Suffolk are being given the opportunity to see their own artwork displayed at railway stations from December in conjunction with the safety campaign.

As school visits are not able to take place due to Covid-19 guidelines, Network Rail’s Community Safety Manager, Becky Crocker, has produced a safety video to bring her rail safety talks to people’s homes.

Families are invited to watch the video and then design a poster with safety messages which could be displayed at stations across the Norfolk area.

Becky Crocker, Network Rail’s Community Safety Manager for Anglia, said: “I know this is a busy time of year, especially for parents, and my safety video is a good way to distract the kids while teaching them important safety messages. I want to encourage families to watch the video and join in with this exciting initiative.”

Martin Halliday, Community Rail Norfolk Development Officer said: “Both the Bittern Line and Wherry Lines Community Rail Partnerships are delighted to be working with Network Rail to run this superb safety initiative and are we are very much looking forward to brightening up stations along our routes with children’s colourful artwork.”

Alan Neville, Greater Anglia’s Customer and Community Engagement Manager, said: “I’d like to thank Network Rail and the Bittern Line and Wherry Lines Community Rail Partnerships for continuing this important work which helps to raise awareness and teach young people how to be safe on the railway.”
