Too Bad TV News Media didn't Tell People about buses

Train service at GO Transit’s Georgetown station has been suspended after a freight train hit a pedestrian early Thursday.

GO buses are shuttling passengers from Georgetown to Brampton while emergency crews respond to the collision, which is causing "significant delays,"
GO officials said in a release.

There was no immediate word on how long the train service would be suspended.

However, GO Transit also said heavy snow this morning is delaying some buses by about half an hour.

The Georgetown train service was suspended after Halton police received a report about the accident at about 6:15 a.m.

The pedestrian was pronounced dead at the scene, Halton police Sgt. Rod Cliffe said.

Investigators expect to remain on scene throughout the morning, Cliffe said.

There were no reports of injuries to the train’s crew, police said.

Help keep our parking lots safe!

At GO Transit we take parking and your safety seriously,

as a result we ask that you please park in designated spots only.

We would like to remind you that parking in an emergency access route,

blocking other vehicles with your car,

or limiting access to designated accessible parking spaces,

may result in your vehicle being ticketed and

We are always looking to add more parking spots at stations across our system,

including multi-level parking structures at key locations,

however, may we suggest alternative ways of getting to your station,

such as carpooling, taking local transit, cycling, or walking if this is possible.

As always, thank you for practising safe parking.
Changes needed

Toronto, Canada

with no debates no details of Changes needed on deadly road

The occurrence of yet another serious vehicular accident on Hwy. 7 between Fourth Line and Tanner's Drive on the east side of Acton prompts the question,

with no bypass should passing lanes be reviewed?

Having lived at this end of town for 24 years

we have seen too many accidents,

most of which involve turning &/or passing

as there are no alternative routes when an accident occurs ...
