"Given the volume of traffic with the bikers trying to cross here, it's a danger to everybody and to the noise levels of the people who are living here. So having a bridge is common sense. So much needed and will be much welcome."
"The trains do come round rather fast. As far as I've seen everybody dismounts and walks over safely. But health and safety these days...I think it would be a very good idea."
"It'll be a lot safer. Nearly all the trains are going to announce when they are coming round the corner.
"I think someone said the speed of the trains are getting faster. So if you can just walk or ride up the bridge, fantastic. Even better if it will take you all over the road but they are obviously short of funds for that."
