Waitakere schools listen to parents

Waitakere schools listen to parents

The schools approached the New Lynn Community Board over the large numbers of cars parking near the busy Kohu, Scenic, Titirangi and Atkinson Roads intersection on school mornings.

As a result the Board approved extra no-stopping lines fringing Titirangi Primary School’s front entrance on Atkinson Road.

Parking bays in nearby Titirangi Road will now have two minute parking between 8.30 and 9.15am Monday to Friday.

Walking school buses are also planned for the future.

Kelston Girls’ High School, adjacent to Great North Road, is also expecting changes. No stopping lines will be added directly opposite the school’s entrance on Archibald Road, to help clear blockages that occur in peak times.

In addition, the Board also approved a recommendation to the Council for a Kea Crossing to help students cross Archibald Road safely. Kea Crossings are pedestrian crossings with student-operated signs that stop traffic and allow students to cross. They are usually accompanied by a painted pedestrian crossing and road calming measures such as concrete triangles to narrow the road at that point.

To these guys, things had to change in Zimbabwe, so that things could remain the same. More>>
