East Avenue Rail Crossing

A couple of months ago an East Avenue resident brought to my attention that she had noticed cars banking across the rail lines in East Avenue at peak hour. She naturally was concerned at the safety risk potential of this.

As the picture shows, with traffic lined up all the way down to Aroha Terrace and the Tram line, this car is lucky there is no train coming, or is there?

I can now say that the Department of Transport, Energy & Infrastructure (DTEI) will investigate my request for yellow box markings on the crossing to discourage vehicles from queuing over tracks, and will also investigate loose rail at level crossing (which I noted in my blog of 6 June).
