A VicRoads Traffic Engineer met with Mrs Thompson on Thursday at the site.
VicRoads explained the current standards for pedestrian crossings and took measurements to make sure the crossing was within VicRoads’ guidelines.
Ideas discussed included pedestrian-operated signals being installed, however, other ideas such as rumble strips and red flashing lights, were outside VicRoads’ standards and guidelines.
VicRoads agreed to make arrangements to refresh the line-marking of the crossing lines.
VicRoads will also contact Campaspe Shire regarding tree trimming near the crossing and painting the crossing bollards in a lighter colour.
A VicRoads spokesperson reinforced safety for all road users was the organisation’s highest priority and that motorists and pedestrians play an important role in being aware of the local traffic environment they are interacting with, including pedestrian crossing points.
