In the context of the problems related to punctuality and safety, Infrabel wanted to better understand the social problems of track trespassing and reckless behaviour in the vicinity of the railway domain.

3 Main questions are addressed in the study:

  1. Who takes risks on the vicinity of the tracks?
  2. What risks do they take exactly?
  3. Why do the take these risks?

The documents related to this dataset include (available below, French and Dutch only)

  • The presentation of these figures and the national Railspect plan made to the press on 25 March 2019
  • The Excel document containing all the questions asked in the survey and the response rates by category

Presentation of the National Action Plan Railspect

With the support of the government, the railway police and Securail, Infrabel launches "Railspect". A national action plan to combat dangerous behaviour on the Belgian railways. This plan provides for several actions based on profiling dangerous behaviour around tracks and level crossings. This profiling was carried out on the basis of a sample of 1000 participants by the GfK panel.
