Safer Routes to School

On the 3rd of May 2019, a child was struck off their bicycle by a vehicle on Flinders Esplanade, Taroona. 

Call on the government to take action in collaboration with the Kingborough Council, on pedestrian safety by:

  • Improving pathways along Flinders Esplanade to ensure adequate crossings for children riding and walking to and from school
  • Create a school zone in the proximity of the school entry point on Flinders Avenue, reducing the speed to 40km/hr.
  • Implement traffic calming measures, such as informal pedestrian crossings, street trees, lane deflection and modal filters to reduce through traffic.
  • Place a ‘give way’ sign and add road markings at the intersection of Flinders Esplanade and Meath Avenue.
