REduction of Suicides and Trespasses on RAILway property (RESTRAIL1) is a threeyear project that began on 1 October 2011 and is co-funded by the European Commission’s FP7 Programme. The aim of RESTRAIL is to reduce the occurrence of suicides and trespasses on railway property and to reduce the service disruption and other consequences these events cause by providing the railway industry with an analysis and identification of cost-effective prevention and mitigation measures.
After having long assumed responsibility for technical aspects linked to traffic safety and installations, railway undertakings have progressively been taking over management of the day-to-day security problems of persons and trains.
