The boom gates at Anderson St, Yarraville can be down for as long as 10 minutes or more at a time, causing many people to make the dangerous decision to cross illegally to avoid missing a train.
It is an accident waiting to happen and needs urgent attention.
There have been several serious incidents at the crossing, including the death of a cyclist. Since the pedestrian underpass was filled in the 1990s there has been no alternative crossing for people who are forced to wait for lengthy periods of time or risk their lives.
I strongly urge you to make pedestrian safety at Anderson St, Yarraville a top priority and provide an alternative crossing before another dangerous incident occurs.
