Comments: The Safety audit at this location identified a number of complex safety issues with respect to pedestrian trespass into the rail right of way from the Sapperton Skytrain Station. The City is continuing to explore options to provide an elevator from the SkyTrain station which will eliminate the trespass into the rail corridor. The required land has been acquired to facilitate this option; however, a date of cessation at this crossing is unavailable at this time.
