Council enhances safety for children travelling to school
Monday, 30 March 2015
Councillor for Walter Taylor Ward, Julian Simmonds has announced an enhancement project to improve pedestrian safety at Clarence Road, Indooroopilly.
Cr Simmonds said the project would be constructed this financial year and increase safety for school students and local pedestrians through the installation of kerb build-outs at the existing Zebra crossing on Clarence Road.
“These improvements will increase the visibility of the existing zebra crossing for motorists and assist in creating a lower speed environment on Clarence Road which will significantly enhance safety for pedestrians,” Cr Simmonds said.
“This pedestrian crossing is already used heavily by local school children and the enhancements are a result of feedback I received from local residents.”
“This local improvement project is part of my efforts to ensure we enhance pedestrian and driver safety in our local suburbs,” Cr Simmonds said.
The project is scheduled to be constructed prior to the end of the financial year.
