Road safety authorities are constantly urging motorists to take extra caution when approaching a railway crossing. Signage at railway crossings often differs depending on the location of the tracks either across country roads, suburban streets or private land.
Whereis® maps cover hundreds of thousands of kilometres of Australia’s roads including those in rural and outback areas. Using custom designed high-tech data capture vehicles, the specialist navigational teams have accurately mapped tens of thousands of railway crossings around the country.
As a result, Whereis® now features alerts for more than 11,000 railway crossings, with drivers receiving audio and visual cues as they approach.
Extreme caution and care must always be taken when approaching a railway crossing, use your portable navigation device to assist you while on the road – particularly in rural regions.
