Awareness measures:
This first year of participation, Norway marked the international level crossing day by campaigning at eight different train stations nationwide. In addition, we also campaigned at two different schools in areas where wild crossings are prevalent. During the campaigns we handed out about 1500 water bottles with a specially designed logo, in addition to approximately 2000 flyers. We also distributed 100 A0 posters which were put up at railway stations nationwide.
