Abstract: Nowadays railway transportation is the cheapest mode of transportation, but due to careless railway crossing and lack of knowledge of workers the number of accidents is increasing day by day, therefore we are trying to find a better solution of railway crossing without any casualties. Railway crossing is very difficult inside the platform, but it is more difficult for physically disable person to cross to cross it without any help. The main objective of automatic railway bridge system is to provide an automatic path specially for handicapped and aged person through which they can easily cross the Platform , also they can save their time. In this system we are using two IR sensor to detect the arrival and departure of train and Arduino to opening or closing of gates. The detection of train will be automatic. As train crosses the platform a path will create by which disablehandicapped person can easily cross the platform. When train will arrive then bridge will be remains in previous stage and people will wait until the train cross, so in this way we can easily develop an automatic railway bridge which will not only reduces the time of people, but also reduces their effort to cross the platform.
