Road up­grade praised

SCHOOL SAFER NOW: PRIN­CI­PAL

Comment News (Gosnells) - - News -

SCHOOL drop-offs and pick­ups at South­ern River Col­lege will now be safer, thanks to a re­cently com­pleted road up­grade.

The City of Gos­nells’ South­ern River Road up­grade in­cludes a new ac­cess way, ad­di­tional park­ing and a ‘Kiss-n-Ride’ drop-off sec­tion in the school car park.

The up­grade also in­cluded a roundabout to im­prove road safety and re­duce con­ges­tion.

South­ern River Col­lege prin­ci­pal Ev­eral Mio­ce­vich said the new ac­cess way and car park helped ease park­ing prob­lems and road safety is­sues cre­ated by the school’s in­creas­ing num­ber of stu­dents.

“Feed­back from par­ents, stu­dents, teach­ers and com­mu­nity mem­bers has been over­whelm­ingly pos­i­tive,” Ms Mio­ce­vich said.

“This has been a muchawaited change to the Ash­bur­ton Drive and South­ern River Road ac­cess.”

The work fits in well with the col­lege’s new fa­cade and aligns with re­cent re­fur­bish­ments and gar­den ar­eas.

“When com­mu­ni­ties work to­gether we can achieve great things,” Ms Mio­ce­vich said.

She thanked the City of Gos­nells for the im­prove­ments and the way they were car­ried out.

City of Gos­nells and South­ern River Col­lege staff with some of the road con­struc­tion work­ers.
