Parkside Primary School Pedestrian Safety Upgrades

This consultation has now closed. Thanks to those who have taken the time to provide feedback. 

Survey results will be considered by Council’s Transportation and Traffic Department.

As part of the State Government’s ‘Fund My Neighbourhood Program’, the Parkside Primary Safe School Crossing Project was successful in receiving funding for the 2018/19 financial year, having being nominated by a local resident.

The project is now with the City of Unley to deliver the safety improvements for schoolchildren, the local community and helping to increase the use of active modes of transport and reduce the speed in the local streets. We are now seeking your feedback on the proposed project.

The project involves the installation of Koala School Crossings on Young Street and Robsart Street with kerb build out treatments at the Robsart and Castle intersections. A Koala School Crossing incorporates yellow flashing lights to warn motorists of the presence of schoolchildren and to provide a safe crossing. The other benefit is that it helps reduce the speed in the area. The design of the school crossings will prohibit parking (during school days) 20m prior the crossing and 10m after the crossing to improve the safety of the schoolchildren by increasing visibility.

Please view the upgrade map in the document library.

Young Street School Crossing

We are looking to install a Koala School Crossing on Young Street near the entrance to the school walkway opposite 22 – 24 Young Street. The traffic volume on Young Street is 1800 vehicles per day with an average speed of 34.3km/hr with 261 vehicles in the morning peak and a further 199 in the afternoon peak. Currently there are 22% of vehicles exceeding the posted speed limit.

Robsart School Crossing

We are looking to install the second Koala School Crossing on Robsart Street near the main

School entrance opposite 13 – 15 Robsart Street. The traffic volume on Robsart Street is 665 vehicles per day at an average speed of 24.4km/hr and there are 112 vehicles in the morning peak with 64 in the afternoon peak. 0.3% of vehicles exceed the posted speed limit at this location.

Robsart / Castle Street Intersection

The Robsart / Castle Street pedestrian safety protuberances will help to increase pedestrian safety by providing greater visibility of the pedestrians and providing a protected space which reduces the available road width and in turn reduces vehicle speeds in the area.

A form has been attached to seek your feedback of the Koala School Crossings and the intersection treatments.

Next Steps

Feedback will be received until Friday 14 September 2018 and will be considered by Council’s Transportation and Traffic Department.
