Extra Pedestrian Crossing for Leader St
A recent safety audit of the Leader St level crossing indicated that there was a need for an additional pedestrian crossing to the south of the intersection. During every Community Advisory Group meeting representatives from DPTI were told by residents that a marked crossing was needed to both the north and south of Leader St at the rail crossing. At every meeting the pleas from residents were ignored. So, it is good to see that, at last, good sense has prevailed. I might also add that residents would still like to see a pedestrian crossing to the north at Victoria St and a safe cycle crossing to the south of the rail line on east ave at Clarence Park. Residents will be notified soon of DPTI's intentions.
