PASSENGERS at Thurston railway station were warned about the dangers of misusing crossings during an awareness event.
They were told about the risks of ignoring warning lights at the station’s barrow crossing by representatives from Network Rail, the British Transport and National Express East Anglia.
The event on Monday was part of a Network Rail campaign to raise awareness of rail safety.
Ria Guyatt, community safety manager for the company, said: “Running the risk at a level crossing is just not worth it.
“By trying to save a few seconds, you could end up seriously hurt or losing your life.”
