Why barrier are important for the project
People who use old Greenwich station for the sole purpose of transportation thinks that barrier are unsafe for the pedestrians. This causes major issue between authorities and the common people. Both of the parties are standing on their opinion regarding barrier. Barrier is important for this project as it will safeguard people from the central structure of the station. With barrier it may be difficult for people to walk with it but it is highly safe as it improves safety of the project.
What will the last decision come after meeting?
A meeting was conducted between authorities and resident of area. Residents drew attention of authorities regarding misconnects of the project. This project is highly confusing, the website itself doesn’t provide complete information about it, and therefore people who are responsible citizen of the county want suitable answer of this question. With this meeting people came to know about the situation of the project, this old Greenwich project is nearly 90 percent complete and within few time it will be open for the general use of people. The number of people who are facing difficulties through this project are high in number barrier use in this project are increasing their trouble. Therefore they are demanding for the removal of these barriers but authorities specify that these barriers are use to safeguard pedestrians from the central structure of the building. This may be creating trouble for now in terms of creating traffic and walking problems but it highly safe. A compromising state came in this meeting where the traffic speed near the place will came down for the sake good for all.
