After two people were killed crossing train tracks in the same area within a week, Stratford Mayor Jim Miron wants fences put up around the tracks.
Miron says he and Stratford police have begun talking to Metro-North about the stretch of tracks at the intersection of Seymour and Hancock streets. The mayor, police chief, MTA police, as well as officials from Metro-North and the Department of Transportation will meet May 3 to start talking about what can be done to prevent future tragedies.
The mayor also says he is in contact with the Greater Bridgeport Transit Authority. He hopes to have the bus stop located on the side of the tracks people were crossing over to get to, moved to the closer side to detract people from crossing.
