Georgian Railways Warns People Not To Cross Train Traffics Due to Weather Conditions

Georgian Railways notifies drivers that railway stations, passenger platforms, railway crossing, railway tracks and all other facilities (territories) related to train traffic represent places of excessive hazard.

JSC Georgian Railway asks you to cross the railroad in only specially marked and arranged places to prevent life threats. Citizens are able to safely cross the railroad by footbridges, tunnels, underpasses and specially arranged pavements.

Crossing railway tracks in forbidden zones and beyond special zones, violates the 5th part of the 106th article of the Georgian Code of Administrative Offenses and results in due sanctions.

At the first stage, the citizen will be warned. At the next stage, the citizen will be forfeited by a 1/10 part of the salary. In the railway stations without bridges or tunnels, a pedestrian must cross the railway track in the place that is marked by “Crosswalk”. Before walking on the pavement, the citizen must make sure no train, locomotive or wagon moves on the railroad.

The citizen must wait until the approaching train has passed away and make sure no train moves on the second railroad. When crossing the railway track, the citizen must look at the traffic light, listen to the voice signal and determine the state of the level crossing gate.

The railroad may be crossed when the level crossing gate is open. If there is no level crossing gate in the railroad crossing zone, the citizen must make sure that no train is approaching the crossing zone and only after that he/she is let cross the railroad. It is categorically forbidden to cross the railroad when the level crossing gate is closed. It is banned to get beneath the halted wagons. It is also banned to walk along the railway tracks within a 5 meter distance.

It is inadmissible to walk on bridges and tunnels without special paths for pedestrians. It is categorically banned to cross the railroad without due signs.

Georgian Railway urges you to cross railway tracks in only special crosswalks by protecting all due regulations!
