Safety win

A TRAFFIC warden will be stationed at the dangerous Clifton Crescent crossing in Mt Lawley after three years of lobbying by the local primary school P&C.

Parents feared it’d only be a matter of time before a student was hit by a car at the busy Second Avenue intersection.

They initially made a bit of headway, but talks stalled because there was disagreement between Main Roads and Stirling council.

P&C representative Annaleise Grubisich credits new Mt Lawley MP Simon Millman for getting things moving again.

He’d attended a P&C meeting and listened to parents’ and school principal Cavelle Monck’s concerns.

Stalled

“Two years and two terms later we finally have a crossing guard thanks to Simon Millman,” she says.

Mr Millman says “it’s easy for projects to be stalled by red tape but initiatives that keep our children safe are too important to be left by the wayside.

“I’d like to commend the hard work of Cavelle and the P&C because it’s a testament to what our community can achieve when we work together.”
