Council road works underway on Carlton Beach Road at the intersection with First and Third Avenues will create a safer road crossing and encourage more children to walk and ride to school.
The School Association passed on parent concerns to Council in late 2011. Since then speed limit signs near the school have been moved/upgraded.
Where the footpath crosses Carlton Beach Road at the intersection with First and Third Avenues, Council upgraded the children crossing signs with larger, brighter signs both sides. After wider public consultation, works are now underway to re-align the road way and add kerbing and guttering, concrete paths and a pedestrian refuge.
Further footpath improvements are planned for Carlton Beach Road and First Ave.
