What if we can improve the efficiency of LRT crossings?

Light Rail Transit (LRT) systems have made a major comeback since many cities around the world decided to tear up their tram tracks decades ago. In many Canadian cities, LRT systems are being embraced in order to accommodate trends in rapid population growth and increasing traffic congestion1. However, intersections where LRT systems cross local traffic pose a significant challenge for everyone due to the heightened complexity and safety concerns. The design of at-grade crossings can have major impacts on the overall efficiency and safety of an LRT system, and are more important now than ever before.
