New safety cross­ing added at school

Hamilton News - - NEWS -

New pedes­trian traf­fic lights are now op­er­at­ing on Collins Rd.

Pupils from Dean­well School were among the first to use the new cross­ing, which will help make get­ting to and from the nearby school a whole lot safer.

Peo­ple trav­el­ling along Collins Rd are asked to take ex­tra care while get­ting used to the new traf­fic lights, and to en­sure they ob­serve the 50km/h speed limit in this area. These are the se­cond of five new pedes­trian lights be­ing in­stalled across the city in se­lected high-risk street cross­ing lo­ca­tions, in­clud­ing around schools and re­tire­ment vil­lages.

In 2019 they will also be in­stalled on Vic­to­ria St by Trev­el­lyn Rest Home, on Masters Ave by Hill­crest High School and on River Rd by Alan­dale Re­tire­ment Vil­lage and the Flagstaff shops.
