I am a local resident of Ringwood East.

Over the past several years, I have seen a large increase of traffic on Bedford Rd Ringwood and Ringwood East.  This has created new traffic snarls and danger along a road that has lots of school traffic, both vehicular and pedestrian.

The current level crossing near the corner of Bedford Road and Great Ryrie St should be removed.  It is one of the last remaining level crossings on the Lilydale and Belgrave rails.  Most others that remain are already planned to be removed.

The Bedford Road crossing currently has no fences to protect vulnerable people such as school students from the rail movements.  The work involved to remove this crossing would be relatively small compared to many other removals due to the fact that no station re-built would be required.

The priority of this crossing should be above that of Dublin Rd, Ringwood East and Coolstore Rd Croydon due to the Volume of traffic involved.
