Safety Issue at Port Credit: Fences need to be added/repaired at Port Credit

It always takes an accident to show issues that really should be caught ahead of time.  Case in point, students cross the tracks near Port Credit Station all the time, so why is there not a high fence to stop them.  There is an underpass they could be using instead.

In fact, over the course of the Lakeshore line there needs to be an inspection done of places where fences are in need of repair or where fences need to be added.  On the train ride in, just looking out my window I could spot large openings in the fences near the tracks.  This is a big safety issue for kids walking home from school.

I look forward to hearing more on what CN, Go Transit and VIA are planning to do to resolve this safety issue through this busy corridor.

On a related note, I would like to say thank you to Mississauga Transit for their assistance during this incident.  They quickly converted Clarkson Station buses to shuttles and got everyone home.
