Light rail crossing points have not been common features of the NSW road environment, but the Newcastle and Sydney Metro, along with the upcoming Parramatta Light Rail means more people need to deal with the hazards posed by crossing tracks.

A Bicycle NSW Member sadly passed away, after falling off his bicycle while crossing the light rail in Newcastle. Since, then the Government is set to ban bike from the light rail corridors - this is not reasonable.
