Ms GEORGIE CROZIER (Southern Metropolitan) - My constituency question is to the Minister for Transport Infrastructure and relates to the safety of the level crossing at Tooronga.
Of particular concern to them is the gridlock of traffic when gates are down, including cars being caught between the pedestrian crossing and the train, causing numbers of people, including children, to jaywalk as a result; an unusual right-hand turn which traps cars on the train lines; a double lane that merges into one lane; and the lack of any infrastructurelights, footpath or a crossingon Carroll Crescent. Bialik College will be expanding to include a new creche in July and is particularly concerned about the safety of young mothers with babies and toddlers trying to cross at Tooronga Road.
