GULDFORD railway station does not have a pedestrian crossing. Traffic at peak hours is a significant hazard to pedestrians crossing Guildford Road.
Pedestrians, young, old and the disabled, play cat and mouse to cross the road.
After waiting or a break in the uninterrupted flow of cars, one is left to take a risk and cross quickly - and run if you can.
The risk of error and accident is real.
After submission of a work order to the shire for a pedestrian crossing, the reply was “yes”, he need exists for a pedestrian crossing but the funds are lacking.
Therefore, there is no action now.
The item is on a waiting list until funds become available. However, there is no estimated date for any action.
One must question the priorities and administration of the shire that lacks the means to install a pedestrian sign and road markings to protect pedestrian crossing a main road at a railway station.
Do we need an accident to occur before action is taken?
