Hazard to pedestrians
As from the planning of this Light Rail station, the pathway for the pedestrian is very close to the rail. When a pedestrian wants to cross from one platform to another platform, there will be a hazard to the pedestrian when a train is also approaching to that platform. However, some pedestrian crossing signal lights were added. When a train is approaching to a platform, a yellow light will be lighted to inform people a train is approaching.
