(2) See response above.

(3) Braddon is an attractive cycling destination as it has good linkages to high use on and off-road active travel networks. The bicycle racks were provided in locations that were observed to have high demand and the numbers of bicycles locked to street furniture such as sign posts.

(4) The provision of bicycle racks is evaluated against requests received from the community or where demand is observed. Bicycle racks are also provided as part of developments or capital works projects.


Education—school crossing supervisor program(Question No 933)

Ms Lee asked the Minister for Education and Early Childhood Development, upon notice, on 16 February 2018 (redirected to the Minister for Transport and City Services):

(1) What specific requirements in the School Crossing Supervisor program are needed for a crossing to be deemed “located on road network adjacent to a school”.

(2) What is the minimum distance away from a school with a close proximity crossing, for a second school to be deemed to benefit from that crossing.

(3) What guidelines are followed when asserting whether a school benefits from a school crossing under the program and can the Minister provide a copy of these guidelines.

Ms Fitzharris: The answer to the member’s question is as follows:

(1) All school and pedestrian crossings on public roads that provide direct access to schools used by infant, primary and special needs children were considered to receive a supervisor as part of the program.

Crossings in school car parks or at traffic signals were not considered as part of the program.

(2) The School Crossing Supervisor program selection committee agreed that co-located schools will potentially both benefit from the introduction of crossing supervisors. This selection committee included representatives from the Education Directorate. Schools were also consulted to develop the program.

Rather than distance, pedestrian and traffic movements, desire lines, the proximity of shopping precincts, access to public transport and car parking facilities were all considered when assessing the potential benefit of the program.
