Councillor Don Palmer Providing Local Leadership & Working for You

“Children Present” signs are due to be installed in Frederick Street Clarence Park, adjacent the Scout/Girl Guides hall.

After seeing evidence of unacceptable speeds in the southern end of Frederick Street in Clarence Park I pushed for us to look into what we can do to make this area safe.

Our traffic staff investigated options and it seems a number of initiatives I would like to have seen applied were not possible under the guidelines of the State Govcrnment Department of Planning, Transport & Infrastructure. The one thing we can do is erect signs in an appropriate location to remind people that this is an area where kids are present.

Hopefully this will see car drivers slowing down a bit.
