Urgent Speed Reduction required at 129 Valley Road, Kawerau (Ngā Purapura Hou Kohanga Reo)

Kia Ora Tātou,

As a concerned parent with a child that attends "Nga Purapura Hou" Kohanga Reo located at 129 Valley Road, Kawerau, with other children aged from 1 yrs old to 4 yrs.

I am concerned at the speed by which some motorists drive past the Kohanga Reo and note that some motorists drive well in excess of the 50kmph speed limit - this is very concerning as it raises safety concerns, and in the unfortunate event that a child should somehow manage to breach the secured gated area there is a serious risk that a child could be hurt and even worse could result in death.

I would like this issue to be raised with Kawerau District Council and dealt with to ensure this high risk is minimised or ultimately eliminated, possibly through a speed hump, signage, a textured road surface or even coloured road surface advising motorists to be aware that there are children in the immediate area.

Kohanga Reo are seriously underfunded as is the entire education system in New Zealand and it is with hope that the Kawerau District Council can offer something to help rectify this serious situation.
