Metrolinx doesn’t give a damn about making their rail corridors easier to cross safely. They’d rather install more and more barriers than build a few new pedestrian crossings, like at Floral Parkway/Bridgeland or across the Kitchener Corridor.
Broadly, I think we need an approved policy guideline that says distance between legal, safe, crossings in an urban area, should not exceed 500M
I say guideline, because I believe in giving policy makers discretion, unless they refuse to use it or refuse to use it wisely.
Not every single point on the line requires such a crossing, and doubtless there are compelling cases in spots for more frequent crossings.
But when major projects come up, this should be a considered issue, every single time.
