I've been crossing that rail since I was 7. I stopped using it temporarily last summer when someone put a sign saying cops were handing out tickets on the other side.

I don't think any amount of fines is gonna stop people from cutting open the fences. It's pretty inconvenient to make a detour in a tunnel to get to where you want to go, especially when there's only 3-4 tunnels on the gravel path that follows the railway. There should be a couple of crossings put in place, with warning lights.

The trains on these tracks are quite loud and relatively slow. I can hear them from a km away where I live. I don't see how anyone could be hit on those tracks unless they are wearing headphones.

why not just make it an elevated crossing or build more tunnels underneath the train tracks? HUH?

I guess no one wants to pay for a safe crossing?

Could maybe a crowd funding solve this?

Totalement daccord!!! Tout le monde dns le quartier le fait deja . Sa m'énerve voir a quelle point on priorisent les intérêts d'une compagnie avant ceux des citoyens. Pourquoi se casser la tete a monter sur le pont rosemont et faire le detour.......

Honnêtement j'ai jamais compris pourquoi tu voudrais prendre la chance de traverser les rails en passant par un bout de clôture qui a clairement été brisée par quelqu'un.
