Costain receives contract from Network Rail to reduce risk at level crossings

Smart infrastructure solutions company Costain said Thursday it had been commissioned by Network Rail to develop a new type of enhanced warning technology which would help reduce the number of incidents at passive footpath and bridleway level crossings across Britain.

The new enhanced warning devices - which would detect an oncoming train and provide an audible and visible warning to alert users – is expected to have a significant impact on public safety at level crossings.

Under the terms of the so-called Meerkat contract, Costain's team would work closely with Network Rail to develop the technology and the first units are expected to be installed within the next 12 months.

The technology is expected to be installed at sites across Britain over the next five years. At 8:06am: (LON:COST) Costain Group PLC share price was -3.5p at 447.5p
