More than 280 people have thrown their support behind Leader’s Make It Safe campaign by signing a petition calling on the State Government to fix a dangerous Hampton rail crossing.
And the campaign has scored its first win, with Public Transport Minister Jacinta Allan asking Public Transport Victoria to ensure greater safety at the Grenville St pedestrian crossing.
Leader last week kicked off its ‘Make It Safer’ campaign, calling on PTV and the State Government to install gates and warning signals at the busy crossing.
The crossing — used by dozens of walkers and cyclists each day — has no safety measures in place and is made more dangerous by a bend in the track.
Promised safety works at the notorious crossing were cancelled by PTV just months before grandmother Gloria Holmes was hit and killed by a train on April 15.
