But soon they will have a pedestrian island on Bromley Rd at the intersection with Keighleys Rd so the children can safely get to the middle of the road before crossing the other lane. The Bromley Community Centre raised the issue with the former Hagley-Ferrymead Community Board in 2015, pushing it for something to be done. “So many of our kids cross there and it’s such a busy road it can be dangerous. “They would duck between stopped cars and trucks because they didn’t want to wait, now it will be much safer,” said school teacher Cathy Baker. She hopes parents will be happier to let their children make their own way to school. School pupils made a deputation to the Linwood- Central-Heathcote Community Board meeting last week, asking for safety measures to be put in place to make it safer to cross. The community board approved the decision to install a pedestrian island. Cr Yani Johanson said it was good news for the school and community centre. Ms Baker said it was “exciting” news after campaigning for safety measures for so long. “We spoke to so many people, went and counted cars and trucks driving past . . . it’s ridiculous,” she said. This comes after schools around the city started campaigning for safer roads outside schools by lowering the speed limits during school hours in the morning and afternoon. Ms Baker said lowering speed limits is an important issue for the schools, but said this was a good step in making the SAFE: Teacher Cathy Baker is excited pupils will be safer crossing a busy road near the school once the pedestrian island is installed.

Work is under way for the pedestrian island. DON’T MISS OUT!
