Works will include the following:

(i)                  Construction of footpath on North side of Charles Street up to the pedestrian crossing in front of school entrance

(ii)                Modification of traffic island on Charles Street and May Street intersection

(iii)               Modification of islands in school carpark, and

(iv)               Repainting and signage of bus-only area

If accessing this area during the construction period, please be aware of workers in the area, pay attention to any signage and drive to conditions.

In order to address several safety and visibility concerns, Council has identified that some small-to-medium trees in the school carpark will need to be removed. These trees are identified in the image below. Council has informed the school and other immediately impacted stakeholders.

Thank you for your understanding as we work to improve and enhance the safety of our community.
