ABSTRACT: Ensuring safety of railway traffic is one of the most important goals of every state. All incidents connected with security that take place in the networks of railway lines result in taking actions aimed at elimination of similar situations in the future. The elements affecting security of the railway system include: technical condition of railway infrastructure and rolling stock, applicable law, people, that is, professional qualifications and proper performance of tasks by the workers. The authors formulated the following research problem: what are the strengths of railway security, and what should be improved? The methodology of qualitative analysis was applied. The survey research on the level of security and diagnostics of causes, needs and options of improvement of security in rail transport were conducted. Broad analysis and inference were conducted. The directions of improvement of security in supervisory, technical, organizational and operational terms in railway transport were presented in this article.
