Australian Level Crossing Assessment Model (ALCAM)


The Australian Level Crossing Assessment Model (ALCAM) is a comprehensive assessment tool used to identify risks at level crossings, in line with both Australian Standard 1742.7:2016 and the New Zealand Transport Agency Traffic Control Devices Manual Part 09, which produces a unique risk score for each level crossing.

It was adopted nationally in 2003, ratified in 2016, and is overseen by the National ALCAM Committee (NAC) which is made up of representatives from Australian jurisdictions and New Zealand. ALCAM is accessible through a purpose-built data management system called the Level Crossing Management (LXM) system.

ALCAM is currently used across Australian and in New Zealand by both rail and road managers.
