More pedestrian crossings needed along Hurstbridge LIne

Feb 10, 2020 | News

From today’s Herald Sun this article talks about the need for pedestrian crossings for students in Diamond Creek.

It’s not just at Diamond Creek that more pedestrian crossings are needed  – students and walkers all along the single rail line between Eltham and Diamond Creek are “dicing with death” and crossing illegally because of large gaps between road crossings and the walking tracks that follow the rail line through here.

I’ve asked for duplication along the whole Hurstbridge line in the past and a review of crossings along this section of track.
