Will these be pedestrian accessible to get to high street from this side of the tracks?

Skybridges and Skyways are ideas from the 1950s and 1960s, when we tried to move people away from grade crossings so that we could move cars as quickly as possible. If the goal is to make cars travel quicker, then great! Let's say as much. If the goal is to make the area better for walking, then skybridges are a regressive "solution".

This whole rotary\intersection does not accommodate bikes or pedestrians. It is designed only for people that are driving. As a cyclist I try to avoid this area as much as possible due to safety concerns.

This MWRTA bus stop and hub is in kind of an awkward location in a weird corner of the mall, which requires a lot of extra driving around the property to access. This, combined with the sub par walkability of the area makes for slow, inconvenient, and sometimes dangerous access to the area for anyone without a car. There is great opportunity for a Shopper's World/Natick Mall dedicated shuttle service and for relocated, more convenient, and more plentiful bus stops.

Love that there is a modern roundabout here. More progressive treatments like this (and raised intersections) should be utilized throughout the study area instead of signal or stop controlled intersections.
