If you’ve ever waited a long time for a train to clear a crossing – and it’s a rite of passage for Londoners – then here’s news: City council has approved a pilot project to provide advance warning a train is crossing.
For starters, the project will be centred on the CN Rail crossing of Colborne St. south of Bathurst. Signs will be situated on York and Horton, about two blocks east and west of Colborne, that will signal approaching motorists the Colborne crossing is blocked by a train. Motorists can then plan a different route.
If the idea works, it will be rolled out to other locations in the city.
