Since becoming school champion for the Your Move program I've had parents approach me asking for installation of crosswalks on the Banksia & Riley St and Banksia & Lawley St intersections. During drop off and pick ups these intersections are a hive of cars and pedestrians trying to weave in and out of each others congestion. Home construction at the Banksia & Riley intersection makes congestion even worse.
I contacted member for Balcatta and fellow school board member David Michael MLA regarding this matter. He is a great supporter of the YM program. We had an in depth discussion about crosswalks. David assured me he would lobby the City of Stirling (CoS) on behalf of Tuart Hill PS but the chances of installing crosswalks is slim as these intersections do not constitute 'busy roads' by definition from local government.
David advised me to liaise with principal Bev to lobby CoS for these crosswalks as a school application will have a greater outcome for success. I thank David Michael for his time and advice. THPS will persist to lobby CoS to install these crosswalks as the safety of students is paramount.
Any developments and updates will be posted. To be continued...
