$8.5m to make schools more pedestrian friendly

By Northern Beaches Council
Posted: 28 Mar 2021
Example of a raised pedestrian crossing: Roseberry Street, Balgowlah.
Northern Beaches Council today announced the start of an $8.57million school pedestrian safety program to be rolled out to 32 Northern Beaches schools over the next 18 months.

Council was successful in securing the funding from the Commonwealth government’s Federal Stimulus - School Infrastructure Program. 

Mayor Michael Regan said pedestrian safety around schools was a top priority and the additional funding would help accelerate the upgrade or replacement of school pedestrian crossings, new footpaths, new shared user paths and safety infrastructure such as kerb ramps. 

“This is an exciting program which will ensure we improve safety for our kids and community around our schools,” Mayor Regan said.

“We have been working on a Safer Schools program for some time with the school community to identify hotspot areas which need urgent safety upgrades.

“I am pleased Council has been able to secure this funding to accelerate the works required to improve the pedestrian areas around these schools and thank both the NSW and Federal governments for their assistance.”

Council is asking for community feedback on the designs for the first schools identified for inclusion in the program: Manly West and  Collaroy Plateau Public School.
