HAMPTON Senior High School students will be able to walk to school in safer conditions thanks to two new children’s crossings.

The City of Bayswater recently finished one of the crossings at the intersection of Maidstone Way and Beechboro Road North ahead of students going back to school next week.

Construction for the second crossing at Hamersley Avenue is scheduled to start in April.

The works are worth $20,000.

There will be two traffic wardens at the crossings during busy morning and afternoon periods.

Mayor Dan Bull thanked the school for prioritising the safety of students both in and out of school hours.

“Over the past 12 months, the City has been working closely with members of the school’s administration, Main Roads, the Department of Education and WA Police to identify the most beneficial locations for the new crossings,” he said.

“By creating safer pathways leading to schools, we’re hoping to make it easier for kids and parents alike to get active and walk, ride or scoot their way to school.”
