School bus timetable

0 comments

Below is a collated list of opinions shared with the CCA regarding the safety concerns about children at the bus interchange:-

 

  1. There is high pedestrian traffic through the Interchange. The head of Transport Canberra has been quoted as saying thousands of children pass through the Interchange each day. A number of people have been appealing to the Government to install traffic lights/pedestrian crossing at the Interchange because of the traffic risk posted to pedestrians. Some bus drivers have been seen by parents to drive very aggressively in this area.

  2. There is insufficient lighting at the Interchange for pedestrians. Only this week, a parent from Campbell witnessed two young school children crossing the road at the Interchange in very poor lighs and they held concerns for them.

  3. Parents who work at the Interchange frequently witness many confronting events including violence, which they as adults find very confronting, let alone the prospect of children having to deal with this.

  4. A number of parents from Campbell, especially mothers, have had very bad experiences at both Civic and other Interchanges.

  5. In support of the above, many parents throughout Canberra have, through social and other media, expressed concerns about the safety of their children at Interchanges.

  6. Parents in Campbell are aware, through recent articles in The Canberra Times, of the current security arrangements at the Interchange and believe they are substantially inadequate.

    Many residents in C5 and "old" Campbell are becoming increasingly concerned about the deteriorating condition of Hassett Park despite the efforts of residents in Saint Germain in weeding, mulching and cleaning. The irrigation has been erratic, either flooding or turned off, mowing is haphazard, weeds have been allowed to flourish and dead and dying plants have not been replaced. The park is still the responsibility of the Suburban Land Agency (SLA) which is required to bring it up to the standard in the approved, award-winning plans before handing it over to Transport Canberra & City Services (TCCS). This was expected to occur by last October but clearly the condition of the park is going backwards, delaying the transfer. Residents are conducting a letter writing campaign to the ACT Government to try to effect an improvement in the condition of the park. All users and admirers of the park are encouraged to write to the SLA (through its website) or directly to Yvette Berry MLA, Minister for Housing and Suburban Development to express their concern.

    Nearby residents have seen what might be a new bird for Hassett Park - the Buff-banded Rail. On Friday there were two or more of them in the creek between the two playgrounds and on Saturday there were three or more of them roaming a little more widely. They have a preference for reedy areas and would rather scamper into hiding than fly. Dog owners are encouraged to keep their dog on a lead when near the creek to minimise the risk of disturbance or death of these beautiful birds.
