A solution is yet to be found for road users frustrated by new safety measures at a dangerous railway crossing. Changes were made to the Woodward Rd railway crossing in Mt Albert last year after it was found to be a significant risk to road users. Drivers overtaking on the tracks and carrying out other dangerous manoeuvres near the crossing led to nine near collisions between trains and cars in just six years. The new safety measures include a traffic island on the side of the crossing closest to New North Rd and an emergency bay to try and stop the overtaking. But the measures have proved to be frustrating for other road users. In December Mt Albert resident John Deck spoke to the Auckland City Harbour News about his concerns. He says the island is causing a massive traffic bottle neck. ‘‘At any time of the day queues can be seen going back at least two blocks,’’ he said at the time. The Auckland City Harbour News received a number of letters from other concerned residents following the article. An Auckland Transport spokesman says the crossing is being monitored but no changes are planned yet.
