Abstract

The crossings of railway and road can represent a great danger, especially in the case of poor design of these crossings, lack of management measures and inadequate provision of road crossing. Such situations are common on the road network of the Republic of Serbia. Namely, more than 50% of all road crossings on state roads in the Republic of Serbia are not adequately equipped and provided with traffic signalization and road equipment. It is evident that this problem requires timely measures and finding an adequate solution in order to efficiently implement road and rail traffic and reduce the risk of negative effects. This situation also results in the occurrence of traffic accidents at road-level crossings, the number of which has not decreased over the years. In this paper, the traffic-spatial analysis of road-rail crossings on state roads in the Republic of Serbia is performed, which includes a total of 245 road-rail crossings. The analysis was conducted in order to determine the existing situation and identify deficiencies in the network, on the basis of which adequate design and management measures will be proposed to improve the existing condition.
