  • About the change

    10 days ago

    To improve pedestrian safety around Wandong Primary School, we're proposing to change speed zones in the area including introducing a permanent 40km/h zone on roads surrounding the Wandong Primary School and LB Davern Reserve including Dry Creek Crescent, Wandong Avenue and Affleck Street.

    The changes are needed due to growth at the school and increased traffic in the area. Studies show that a pedestrian hit at 50 km per hour is four times more likely to be killed or seriously injured than if they are hit at 40 km per hour.

    Before we go ahead with the change, we're seeking community input. We're contacting landholders in the area and we want to hear from the wider community.

    Please let us know if you support the change or if you have any concerns that may need addressing.
