Inspection of Level Crossings by PWI and AEN
The PWI should inspect level crossings once a month, check the equipment to be used by the gatemen, examine their knowledge of safety rules, and carry out other routine inspections. She or he should also carry out surprise inspections of level crossings to ensure that the gateman is in attendance and is alert. In addition to the aforementioned duties, the PWI should inspect the rails, sleepers, and fastenings at least once a year after getting the level crossings fully opened out.
The AEN should inspect all the equipment at every manned level crossing that comes under her or his subdivision once every six months and quiz the gateman regarding rules during the inspection. She or he should scrutinize the manuscript registers of level crossings that are maintained by the PWI and inspect as many level crossings as possible when they are opened completely during the year.
