School seals the deal

Kwinana Courier - - News -

A PARK­ING is­sue that had plagued Rock­ing­ham Lakes Pri­mary School for years is set to be re­solved af­ter con­struc­tion be­gan on a new sealed carpark re­cently.

Warn­bro MLA Paul Pa­palia made good on a pre-elec­tion prom­ise to com­mit money for the project through the State Govern­ment’s lo­cal projects, lo­cal jobs ini­tia­tive.

“This new carpark is long over­due and been an on­go­ing is­sue for years, “he said.

“It caused is­sues not just for par­ents pick­ing up their kids from school but also for res­i­dents around the school due to in­creased traf­fic and dust from the old lime­stone carpark.

“The seal­ing of the area and the cre­ation of a kiss and drive is the re­sult of an elec­tion prom­ise of $150,000 com­mit­ted by the State Govern­ment.”

The City of Rock­ing­ham is also part of the project, match­ing the Govern­ment’s com­mit­ment of $150,000 dol­lar for dol­lar to bring the to­tal con­tri­bu­tion to $300,000. Mayor Barry Sam­mels said work be­gan the week of July 9 and was sched­uled to be fin­ished by the end of Septem­ber.
