ALCAM Homepage

The Australian Level Crossing Assessment Model or "ALCAM" is an assessment tool which may be used to:

  • identify key potential risks at level crossings (both road and pedestrian crossings);
  • assist in the prioritisation of crossings for upgrades; and
  • support the decision making process when determining the most cost effective treatments.

ALCAM is currently used across Australia and in New Zealand by both rail and road managers and is overseen by a National Committee of representatives from the various jurisdictions to ensure its consistency of development and application.  

Further information regarding the construction and algorithms used within the model can be found here.
