Second tram stop death shocks Bern officials
Bern public transport officials admit they’re shocked after a second death on the network and will review safety at all tram stops.
A 30-year-old woman was killed in 2011 at the Kocherpark stop – and then another death at the same stop in June when a 54-year-old man died.
Engineers will examine all stops and could widen platforms, add new markings and look at any other improvements that could be made.
But a spokesman also added it is important that all road users, including pedestrians and passengers, have to be aware of the dangers.
