Crossings made easy at Fish Creek


Crossings made easy at Fish Creek

A NEW school crossing has been established outside Fish Creek Primary School for the safety of students and the community.
The $150,000 project was funded through a grant of $60,000 from the Transport Accident Commission’s Local Government Grants Program and a $90,000 South Gippsland Shire Council contribution.
The crossing was constructed by Council’s contractor ADA Constructions over a period of three months. Due to the small size of the school a crossing had never been constructed however ongoing support of the community and consistent petitioning for the last 10 years created a case for the asset.
The crossing is now fully functional with a crossing supervisor operating during the busy school rush with only minor cosmetic additions needed.
South Gippsland Shire Council’s Assets Planning Engineer Geoffrey Davis highlighted the importance of the crossing for the community. “The new school crossing in Fish Creek will provide an easy and safe way for parents and school children to cross the road.
“Thanks to the ongoing support from the community, we were able to successfully apply for the grant from the Transport Accident Commission.
“The crossing has been put to good use since the beginning of school with everyone taking full advantage of the area,” said Mr. Davis.

Crossing with care: parents can now cross the road with their children safely.
