Peter B replied to Tony P's discussion Potential death trap along Mike Turtur bike path - Plympton Park tram / pedestrian / bike crossing
"Wow, I see what you mean. In short: too long a distance between the traffic light (at the tram line) and the pedestrian crossing (maybe 40 metres east), on the eastbound side. That is a very dangerous situation, and easily fixed by a couple of extra…"
