We chat to locals in Reservoir

[Vision:  Reservoir Station sign - time lapse of High Street Reservoir traffic]

Male 1

Please, please you have to fix this section of Reservoir.

Male 2

It’s a mess.

Male 3

It drives you nuts.

Female 1

It’s a long wait.

Female 2

One time I nearly died there.

[Vision:  Pedestrians waiting at pedestrian gates at level crossing - Female 1 speaking]

If you’re a pedestrian you can spend five-ten minutes and you miss your train on the other side, and also in the car it’s even more congested.

[Vision:  Traffic at level crossing - Male 2 speaking]

You can’t turn right, the light never change, traffic can never get through so it’s about time they can fix the boom gates there.

[Vision:  Boom gates down, traffic and train passing]

Male 4

It’s seeing your journey be interrupted by two or three trains at a time.

It’s knowing that you can get somewhere if only this crossing didn’t exist.

[Vision:  Boom gates down, traffic and train passing - Male 3 speaking]

It’s going to be a lot safer and a lot better for everyone.

Female 3

The Reservoir level crossing is a nightmare.

It’s going to be really good to get rid of it.
