Urgent action on speed signs for Glen Eira College students

This petition made change with 413 supporters!

VicRoads should urgently install variable electronic signs at the dangerous pedestrian school crossing on Booran Rd, Caulfield East outside Glen Eira College.

The school campus is split in two across Booran Rd and the pedestrian crossing with traffic lights allows students to cross. This crossing is dangerous as students are crossing this busy road during the whole day for lessons in the gym and the English Language Centre as well as to use the recreational space at recess and lunchtime not just in school zone times when the crossing is supervised by a Council crossing supervisor.

Parents and College staff are very worried as there have been some near misses at this crossing with cars not stopping in time, or not stopping at all, in some cases. This is despite teacher supervision of the crossing during the school day and a crossing supervisor before and after school. This is an accident waiting to happen to one of our children.

Variable electronic speed signs are required to make the traffic lights more visible to drivers as well as to extend the 40km/h speed limit throughout the school day.  

VicRoads have advised the school that there will be a 5-10 year wait for the school to receive the appropriate signage. This is unacceptable given what could happen to one of our children in the meantime.

This issue was raised recently on the front page of the Caulfield/Glen Eira Leader (27 September - see photo).

Please support the safety of our children and sign this petition.
