Media Release Friday 29 November 2013
The ACT Government has finally acknowledged the need for a school crossing over McBryde Crescent in Wanniassa, adjacent to Trinity Christian School, Member for Brindabella Nicole Lawder said today.
The Government has released the Residential Street Improvement Program Wanniassa – Stage 2 Consultation which proposes a children’s crossing and further parking arrangements.
“I’ve been lobbying for better children’s safety and a proper school crossing over McBryde Crescent and it’s terrific the government has finally come around to seeing the need for this crossing,” Ms Lawder said.
“To make sure this crossing actually comes to fruition I encourage people to comment on the consultation and make their support known.
“This proposed school crossing has come about because of the community which stood up to get a petition going. Hundreds of residents came forward to sign the petition which is essential to improving the safety of children on such as busy road.
“I will continue to lobby with a watchful eye until this crossing over McBryde Crescent is built,” Ms Lawder concluded.
