Works to improve child safety around school

Works to improve child safety around school

Tuesday, April 04, 2023

The City of Whittlesea is taking advantage of the upcoming school holiday period to carry out safety improvements outside St Peter’s Primary School in Epping.

The works on Coulstock Street, between Howard Street and Davisson Street, will start on Wednesday, 12 April and are anticipated to continue until Monday, 24 April.

The project will see construction of a concrete shared path along the south side of Coulstock Street and the upgrading of the existing children’s crossing to a raised crossing (also known as a wombat crossing).

Complementing these safety improvement works will be the installation of associated drainage and signage, as well as line-marking.

There will be no changes to private vehicle crossings.

These important works will cause some temporary disruption to traffic, but private property access and waste collection services will be maintained for the project’s duration.

The project forms part of a larger plan to improve traffic management in the vicinity of St Peter’s Primary School.
