Trinity Christian School wants a crossing

By johnboy - 24 October 2013 3

Nicole Lawder is getting steamed up on behalf of Trinity Christian School and the risks of a lack of a crossing:

ACT Labor has denied students at Trinity Christian School in Wanniassa road safety, dismissing the Canberra Liberals calls for a school crossing over McBryde Crescent, Member for Brindabella Nicole Lawder said today.

“Today in the Legislative Assembly, Labor and the Greens dashed hopes of parents, school staff and students to get a proper pedestrian crossing built over this dangerous stretch of road outside the school. The Government has put off building a crossing in favour of a review,” Ms Lawder said.

“Many parents have discussed their concerns with me about the safety of their children on their way to and from school around McBryde Crescent. No crossing means there is a major safety risk which doesn’t have to be there.

“I have sponsored an e-petition for a crossing which is getting the support of concerned residents and the school community. It will be tabled in the November sitting of the Legislative Assembly.

It’s hard to imagine any review being cheaper than just building the crossing.

What’s Your opinion?

drove past there yesterday, there is a perfectly good underpass at one end of the school – but of course that is too hard to use and ensure the kids get across the road safely! the Gov has also put a pedestrian island at the other end to help crossing the road. As always the major threat to the children’s safety at these peak times is OTHER PARENTS!! it is amazing how selfish and irresponsible parents dropping kids off can be – most are OK but some need serious education on safety.
