The Global Level Crossing Symposium (GLX) is a forum that brings together safety professionals from around the globe in order to exchange information and provide experiences and lessons for improving the way in which the interface between the road and rail systems is managed at level crossings.
The first GLX was held in 1990 as a result of an initiative of the US and now GLX is a biennial event held each even-numbered year. The previous event, GLX 2008 was held in Paris and attracted about 170 delegates from 5 continents. Participants of the symposium have been from the road sector, the rail sector, police and law enforcement agencies and government agencies. We are very pleased to advise you that the 11th GLX Symposium will be held in Tokyo, Japan. One of the most important themes, preventing accidents at level-crossings, is considered as coming from cooperation between the rail and road sectors, road administration agencies and users of the level-crossing. Accordingly, the theme of the 11th GLX Symposium will be ’Toward further improvement of level crossing safety - Coordinated Approach and Individual Efforts’.
