Pedestrian Crossing; Millswood Cres to Arundel Ave
With increasing alarm residents are watching this crossing to ascertain why DPTI have shown more interest. It may be just that the Belair train started running this week and they wished to alert pedestrians of this. However, residents believe they may be pre-empting closing the crossing if they don't believe it generates sufficient use. I would rather believe that they are ascertaining if a gate mechanism, as will be provided at the Fairfax Ave crossing, is also required in this location. I will update when I find out. However, in the meantime please use this crossing as often as you are able to boost the numbers.
It seems the reason may be that the new location of the passing loop will block the line of sight to on coming trains if a Belair train is waiting in the loop.
