Level crossings like the one at Glen Huntly slow down trams, cars, pedestrians and trains alike… in fact due to the tram/train crossing (one of four in Melbourne), trains have to slow down to 15 km/h.
And the confined pedestrian
runs paths leave one feeling a little like a sheep.
There’s no organised programme to get rid of Melbourne’s level crossings, as was almost completely done in Sydney in the past few decades. Instead they’re doing about one every year. At that rate it’ll be centuries before they’re all gone. We might all be travelling by teleport by then.
