    Previous Items Council on 17 November 2014 (Item 4.2 - School Crossing Superviser Program

    Update)

    EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

    Council provides supervisors at school crossings throughout the municipality to improve the safety of children walking to and from schools. Requests for new crossings and supervisors are considered against VicRoads warrants. Concerns were received in relation to pedestrian safety at the signalised intersection of Rosanna Road and Darebin Street, Heidelberg, at school pick-up and drop-off times. The number of children and vehicles at the intersection show that it meets the appropriate warrants for a State Government crossing supervisor subsidy. The site has been included in the 2015/16 application to VicRoads. Due to the volume and nature of the traffic on Rosanna Road, it is proposed that the site be supervised as soon as a crossing supervisor is available, given the safety concerns at this location.

    RECOMMENDATION

    That Council: 1. Fund a school crossing supervisor at the signalised intersection of Rosanna

    Road and Darebin Street, Heidelberg, as soon as a crossing supervisor is available, given the safety concerns at the location.

    2. Work with Heidelberg Primary School and Good Start Early Childcare Centre to

    encourage walking/cycling as a means of accessing the school. 3. Notify Heidelberg Primary School and Good Start Early Childcare Centre of this

    resolution.

    OFFICER DECLARATION OF CONFLICT OF INTEREST

    Section 80C of the Local Government Act 1989 requires members of Council staff, and persons engaged under contract to provide advice to Council, to disclose any direct or indirect interest in a matter to which the advice relates. Council officers involved in the preparation of this report have no conflict of interest in this matter.

    CITY PLAN

    This report is in line with Councils City Plan key direction to provide services for people at important life stages.

    BACKGROUND

    Council is responsible for the ongoing review of the school crossing program including the operation of supervised school crossings throughout the municipality. Each year the State Government provides a subsidy to Council to offset 26.7% of the costs of the supervision at sites that meet specific warrants. Council must submit an application for this subsidy to VicRoads. The 2015/16 school crossing supervisor subsidy application has been submitted to VicRoads and it did not include this site in the original application. The request for amendment of the annual subsidy application was granted by VicRoads to allow this site to be included. Concerns have been received relating to pedestrian safety at the signalised intersection of Rosanna Road and Darebin Street, Heidelberg. The concerns noted that motorists frequently failed to stop at the red light and speed through the intersection when the pedestrian green lights are displayed. Further, when traffic is at a gridlock, the concerns indicate that vehicles regularly block the crossing and pedestrians are required to navigate between vehicles. These issues are worse during school drop off (8:30am-9:30am) and pick up (3:00pm-4:00pm) times when children are using the crossing. A locality plan showing the subject location in relation to Heidelberg Primary School and the Early Learning Heidelberg Childcare Centre is shown in Figure 1.
