DPTI have announced that they are to install a pedestrian crossover at the Leader Street level crossing early next year.
After my initial observation 12 months ago and continued similar observations since then by the residents of Goodwood, Millswood, Forestville etc that a pedestrian crossing was needed on the south side of the Leader Street level crossing the project team of DPTI have also worked it out.
I guess we simply had to have patience that they (DPTI) would eventually see what we could all see and that a pedestrian crossing was needed on the south side of this crossing. Let’s face it the projects conducted on the rail corridor were all “design and construct” so we could not expect they could plan ahead until it became obvious.
It is a shame that the observations of residents and myself could be treated with what I would suggest was disdain. It is great thought that they are now on the same page.
Thank you DPTI.
