5. Ewen Avenue & Brookes Street/Port Royal Crossing

Primarily operated by: SRY
Safety audit complete: Yes
Design complete: Yes
Construction status: Complete
Whistle cessation process: Step 8

Comments: Pedestrian barriers have been installed but the crossing is still in the process of being reviewed for compliance with whistle cessation requirements. An operating notice to railways to cease whistling at the crossing was issued prematurely before all regulatory requirements were satisfied. Additional steps in the regulatory process need to be followed in terms of compliance of the crossing in order to ensure public safety.
