A near-miss on level-crossing

Level crossings remain to be the most risky place for the rail transportation across the whole Europe. Here you can see a near miss where a cyclist was just lucky enough to escape from a catastrophic accident. It just happened a few days ago in The Netherlands bringing this question into mind that “Is it only the cyclist who needs to be careful?”  The cyclist crosses the tracks just after a cargo train, and it looks like that he could not see the passenger train coming. Shouldn’t a designer, engineer, or operator consider such a scenario while constructing a level-crossing?
