Primary school at crossroads

Calista Primary School principal Craig Skinner said there was an uncontrolled and unmarked area where many children and parents crossed Harlow Road.

�Parents have been requesting for some time a crossing here, due to their concerns for children�s safety,� Mr Skinner said.

�We have requested this through the Kwinana City Council and Main Roads.

�The location was assessed and found that it did not qualify for a crossing of any type. The school and parent community would like a zebra crossing, but would be even happier with a manned crossing.�

A Main Roads spokeswoman said Harlow Road was a local road under the care and control of the City of Kwinana.

�It is council�s responsibility to investigate whether this site meets the criteria for a zebra crossing,� the spokesman said.

�Main Roads has provided initial advice to council on the criteria for the installation of zebra crossings but no formal application has been received from the council for a crossing at this location.�
