Procedure in the event of an accident involving a person on the tracks
In the event of an accident involving a person on the tracks, the emergency services must be able to intervene as quickly as possible to assist the victim. The impact on the rail network is inevitable, starting with the immediate interruption of train traffic in order to ensure the safety of those involved on site.
What actions do the CFL take so emergency services can intervene quickly? Why does it take time for train traffic to resume throughout the network?
It should be noted that the traffic is resumed gradually. In the course of the procedure, the CFL departments concerned will ensure that, once the police investigation has been completed, the train can be towed away and passengers will be transported by a new deployed rolling stock.
