Manning of Unmanned Railway Level Crossings                
            It has emerged from the analysis of pattern of accidents that manning of unmanned level crossing is not an ideal solution.  Therefore, the policy of manning of unmanned level crossings has been reviewed.  Accordingly, Indian Railways have decided to progressively eliminate all unmanned level crossings by:

(i)                Closure – Closing unmanned level crossings having NIL/negligible Train Vehicle Unit (TVU).
(ii)             Merger- Merger of unmanned level crossing gate to nearby manned or unmanned gates or subway or Road Under Bridge (RUB) or Road Over Bridge (ROB) by construction of diversion road.
(iii)         Provision of Subways/RUBs
(iv)            Manning -  The unmanned level crossings which cannot be eliminated by above means, will be progressively manned based on rail-road traffic volume, visibility conditions for which the criteria is as under:
Category – I: All unmanned level crossings gates with Train Vehicle Unit (TVU) above 3000.
Category –II: All unmanned level crossings gates with visibility restricted to 800 meters for road users and TVU above 2500.
Category –III: All unmanned level crossings, which do not fall in Category –I & II above.

This information was given by the Minister of State for Railways Shri Kotla Jaya Surya Prakash Reddy in written reply to a question in Rajya Sabha today.
