Mrs Clarke represented one of two schools which submitted on the intersection, joining the fight with city councillor Aaron Keown to get the intersection upgraded to lights. Cr Keown has been lobbying to have the intersection upgraded for more than two years, and said he has been contacted about it more than any other issue over his 10 years of being elected. Breens Intermediate is 350m from the intersection, which sees 10 lanes converging, and Mrs Clarke said more than a third of pupils pass through it to get to school. •Turn to page 4 BLINDS...Cleaned, Repaired & Restored...
