Yes, time has changed. Instead of everyone saying no, no, no, how about being more open-minded and thinking about solutions? How about, say, widening the roads? Building a bridge mid-air to allow parents and children to safely cross the streets? In addition, think about this, how often do people go to Mitre 10? How often do people visit Aldi? The current design and the landscape of the spot is the root problem. Having a pedestrian crossing so close to Hay Road is a even bigger issue. Because of the fact that the location of the pedestrian crossing presents a big threat to drivers, i.e., especially if people try to merge with the main road from Hay Road by accelerating quickly, hence, this existing ill-thought-through decision has increased the likelyhood of having sudden breaks. How come no one thought about suggesting moving the pedestrian crossing either north or even better, south for 10 or 20 meters to align with the road layout / T-junction? Why does this pedestrian crossing have to be literally right in the middle of a busy spot? Please be fair to the others within the same local community.
