VIA stepping up safety measures at Barrhaven crossings

VIA is adding additional safety measures at multiple crossings in the Barrhaven area including on Fallowfield, Woodroffe, Greenbank, Jockvale and Strandherd, along with the Transitway.

Trains will be slowing down at each of those crossings.

This will cause some train delays.

Also, additional personnel will be stationed at those spots and VIA says - with city hall - they'll consider adding cameras to minimize technicial response time.

There have been more than a dozen signal malfunctions in the last few months.

City Manager Kent Kirkpatrick says while the city welcomes the measures, they're still looking forward to a permanent solution within the three week period promised by VIA's president.
