Weeds are taking over the SunRail station

Nasty weeds

Did anyone notice that weeds are about to take over SunRail’s southbound platform at downtown Orlando’s Church Street station?

An eagle-eyed rider called this unsightly problem to our attention. How come SunRail/FDOT staff didn’t notice and take action?

As you can see in the accompanying photos, the weeds are about 2 feet tall and look really nasty.

It’s not as though this platform is in the middle of nowhere – someplace between Longwood and Lake Mary. Church Street is one of SunRail’s busiest stations – especially for morning commuters. Talk about making a bad impression!

Still, the major question is: Does SunRail inspect stations on a daily basis? This problem is an issue of housekeeping and maintenance. What if the issue was safety?

This also makes us wonder how many other problems have been overlooked or ignored at other SunRail stations?

Perhaps SunRail is waiting for a rider to bring a weedwhacker to spiff up Church Street.
