Anybody notice that the East Dublin Bart Platform is not safe from car accidents on 580?
Anybody notice that the East Dublin Bart platform is essentially at the same elevation as the 580 hwy and that the only barrier between you and the cars is short concrete shoulder and a chain linked fence? To me this is a deadly accident waiting to happen. Looks like a very dangerous liability. If there's ever a car accident at that section of 580, imagine a car or truck colliding into the barrier, and shrapnel and parts of the vehicle flying into the crowd on the platform, decapitating several bystanders? A tiny chain linked fence is not going to stop a Semi Truck at all. It'll crash right through the fence like cobb webs and fire and debris will slam right into the crowd standing on the platform.
West Dublin bart is much safer, protected with walled barriers. Other bart stations by hwys, like Castro Valley is safer too, because the platform is MUCH higher than the hwy elevation.
