12 New School Crossings

Whitehorse News - July 2020

Whitehorse is about to become an even safer place for students, their parents and carers to get to and from schools with the introduction of 12 new staffed road crossings operating from term 3.

Each new location will be staffed by a crossing supervisor - a lollypop person - to help users cross safely in the mornings and afternoons.

Drivers should be aware of the changed traffic conditions as they approach the new crossings, listed below, from the beginning of term 3, and pedestrians should make a habit of using the new crossing points to set a good example to students, even if it means walking a few minutes out of their way to do so.

There are now high volumes of children and high levels of traffic moving around each new location, meeting VicRoads subsidy levels set for providing a staffed crossing.
