BROOM­FIELD SAFETY

Northern Outlook - - YOUR LOCAL NEWS -

Safety im­prove­ments have been made to the road­sides sur­round­ing Broom­field Pri­mary School by the Hu­runui District Coun­cil’s road­ing con­trac­tor, Si­con. New spa­ces large enough for buses to pull in and out of have been cre­ated on the side of Onepunga Rd, mak­ing school drop-offs and pick-ups safer for the school’s chil­dren. Around 80 per cent of Broom­field stu­dents ar­rive by bus each day. Pre­vi­ously, the only area large enough for a school bus to turn into and keep off the road was on Mt Brown Rd, a road with high traf­fic vol­ume. Coun­cil’s road­ing team leader, Kushla Tap­per said the im­prove­ments will make a huge dif­fer­ence to the safety of stu­dents who bus to the school each morn­ing.
