Construction complete

Pedestrian safety near Collaroy Plateau Public School has been improved by constructing a new raised crossing at the shops on Telopea Street.

The new pedestrian crossing is seven metres to the west of the roundabout at the intersection of Aubreen and Telopea Streets to allow vehicles space to wait before and after the crossing without blocking the roundabout.

One parking space has been removed to ensure the view of the crossing is not obstructed.

This project was delivered as part of the Federal Stimulus - School Infrastructure Program, with funding secured to support pedestrian improvements in local schools.
