Heavy Vehicle Research

Since 2010, there have been more than 23 collisions between heavy vehicles and trains at level crossings in New Zealand, and more than 300 near misses.

TrackSAFE NZ wants to reduce these incidents and help save lives.

We are launching a research project to collect information on your experiences as a heavy vehicle driver around level crossings.

Your feedback will be used to develop a new safety education campaign to help reduce the number of incidents involving heavy vehicles.

The research will involve either a short phone call or an online survey which would take around 10 minutes of your time. This will happen between December 2017 and February 2018.

Everyone who takes part will go into a prize draw for one of five $200 fuel vouchers.

For more information about the research, please email or phone Megan on (04) 498 2010.

To register directly for the research or to provide a list of willing participants from your organisation, email or phone Karen on (04) 473 1066.
