North Sydney Council has secured more than $1.6m of funding for 11 school road crossing upgrades
More than $1.6m in grants will be spent improving road safety infrastructure around North Sydney schools over the coming months.
Council nominated 14 projects for Transport for NSW’s Road Safety Program - School Zone Infrastructure grants and was successful in 11 of them.
The grants will be used to create raised crossings, to extend kerbs and introduce pedestrian refuge islands, which all help improve visibility and slow down traffic, making children safer as they walk to and from school.
Crossings to be upgraded include:
- St Aloysius College Junior School: Installing two raised pedestrian crossings on the Alfred Street South at Fitzroy Street intersection, Milsons Point
- St Aloysius College: Installing raised pedestrian crossing on Broughton Street at Kirribilli Avenue, Kirribilli
- Loreto Kirribilli: Raising existing crossing on Carabella Street at Fitzroy Street, Kirribilli
- St Aloysius College: Raising existing crossing on Clark Road at Margaret Street, North Sydney
- Neutral Bay Public School: Raising existing crossing on Ben Boyd Road at Hardie St, Neutral Bay
- Cammeray Public School: Raising existing crossing on Carter Street at Colin Street, Cammeray
The grants have been allocated from the Federal Government’s new Road Safety Program which prioritises the development and delivery of road safety infrastructure projects across NSW to support jobs and stimulate local economies.
