Cross­ing de­lay

Central Leader - - LETTERS -

Thanks for your story on the Wood­ward Rd level cross­ing, ( Cen­tral Leader, De­cem­ber 5).

The best so­lu­tion is clearly a bridge but that’s un­likely any­time soon.

How­ever, I want to make this com­ment:

I have no­ticed that when I’ve had to wait for a train, the bar­ri­ers are down and the lights flash for what seems to be an ex­ces­sive length of time.

In fact, I have of­ten won­dered if the ma­chin­ery has a fault or if a train is even coming at all.

This kind of de­lay not only causes even more con­ges­tion than is nec­es­sary but is con­ducive to peo­ple tak­ing risks, like go­ing around the bar­ri­ers.

Can the wait­ing time be short­ened to al­le­vi­ate this sce­nario?
