A new children’s crossing has been completed at Collingwood Park in time for the start of a new school year.
The crossing has been installed on Woodlinks Way between Collingwood Drive and Cypress Street.
Works included the installation of two kerb ramps, associated posts, line markings and signage.
Deputy Mayor and Division 3 Councillor Marnie Doyle said the crossing was a vital piece of infrastructure for the growing Collingwood Park community.
“Collingwood Park is one of our city’s fastest growing suburbs, with more than 35 new dwellings between July and September last year,” Cr Doyle said.
“Managing growth is a key priority of this council as more and more people come to call Ipswich home.
“With this new school crossing, we are delivering the infrastructure our growing community needs.”
Division 3 Councillor Andrew Fechner said the crossing would improve safety for local families.
“We know how important it is that our young readers feel safe when getting to and from school each day, especially as more Ipswich students embrace active transport options such as walking and cycling to school,” Cr Fechner said.
“This crossing will improve safety for students and their families, as well as motorists, just in time for the 2021 school year.”
