SEPTA will remove the gates at the trolley stops in Springfield Township starting with the Springfield Road station where they have been causing traffic snarls for a year albeit things have gotten better in recent months, thank you State Rep. Bill Adolph.
Plans also call for the removal of gates at Scenic Road and Saxer and Leamy avenues.
Spend thousands to put them up and spend thousands to take them down. Measure once cut twice could be the motto of any organization affiliated with government in this area.
Will the signal timing change at Springfield Road? I doubt they will be having trolleys once again make all stops on the northern side of the busy highway something that allowed the vast majority of commuters to avoid crossing it.
