Nod for traf­fic plan

Western Suburbs Weekly - - News -

AF­TER a lengthy process, the Town of Clare­mont ap­proved a traf­fic man­age­ment and trans­port plan for Scotch Col­lege. It was passed at the July 19 coun­cil meet­ing. The re­vised plan ad­dresses con­cerns raised dur­ing the ini­tial pub­lic con­sul­ta­tion pe­riod for the school’s Early Learn­ing Cen­tre in 2015 and mat­ters dis­cussed at the State Ad­min­is­tra­tive Tri­bunal me­di­a­tion ses­sions.

Im­prove­ments have been made to the con­trol and man­age­ment of park­ing and ve­hi­cle move­ment in and around the col­lege to sat­isfy and ad­dress com­mu­nity con­cerns and ex­pec­ta­tions.

School prin­ci­pal Alec O’Con­nell said: “Traf­fic man­age­ment plans are not easy, there are lots of chal­lenges.”

He said the aim was to “de­crease the fetish” of drop­ping stu­dents off at the school doorstep.

The re­vised plan also notes ad­di­tional work on traf­fic man­age­ment is re­quired, par­tic­u­larly in Wright Av­enue south of Saun­ders Street.
