A radar on the tracks for more safety at track crossings?

Would radars at track crossings be an idea to be able to avoid accidents like the one that recently happened in Bertrange? In Germany, there are already such devices in various places that warn the train when something is on the tracks. The DP MP Max Hahn has asked the responsible minister about this idea and also wanted to know how the CFL is progressing with the replacement of the railway barriers by subways.

„Rezent ass et zu Bartreng bei engem Passage à niveau zu engem Tëschefall komm, bei deem eng Automobilistin mat hirem Gefier op de Gleisen tëscht den zouene Barrièrë stoung, an den Auto du vum Zuch matgeholl gouf.

Am Ausland, z.B. an Däitschland, ginn et op verschiddene Plaze sougenannt „Gefahrenraum-Freimeldeanlagen“, déi mellen, wann en Objet op de Schinne steet a sou eng Kollisioun solle verhënneren.

An deem Kader wollt ech dem Här Minister fir Mobilitéit an ëffentlech Aarbechten folgend Froe stellen:

  • Zu wéi ville sou Accidenter wéi dee rezenten zu Bartreng ass et an de leschte fënnef Joer zu Lëtzebuerg komm?
  • Ginn et Plazen, wou sou Accidenter besonnesch dacks virkommen?
  • Ass den Här Minister der Meenung, dass et derwäert ass, och zu Lëtzebuerg déi uewe genannte Gleiseradaren op verschiddene Plazen z‘installéieren?
  • Wa jo, wou wier dat? Bis wéini kéint dës Mesure ëmgesat ginn?
  • Wéi vill Passages à niveau sinn an de leschte fënnef Joer wechgeholl ginn? Op wéi enge Plazen ass dat geschitt?
  • Wéi vill Passages à niveau sollen an den nächste Joren nach fortgeholl ginn? Op wéi enge Plaze soll dat geschéien? Bis wéini sollen déi eenzel Projeten ofgeschloss sinn?“

Extension of the death penalty in Belarus

On 18 March this year, Belarus by decree extended the possibility to be condemned to the death penalty, so that now not only people who took part in a terrorist act, but also those who attempted such an act can be punished with the death penalty. The opposition sees in this decision an attempt to suppress the free expression of opinion and the opponents of the government. How to assess this situation? Our MP Gusty Graas inquired at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
