In addition to assisting children to cross roads safely, supervisors will improve traffic flow and reduce congestion, providing a greater benefit to the local school communities in the vicinity of a supervised crossing.

(3) A number of factors were considered by the selection committee when determining whether a school will benefit from a crossing supervisor, including the location of amenities like shopping centres and access to transport facilities.

The criteria used to select the priority sites is available on the Transport Canberra website (https://www.transport.act.gov.au/getting-around/active-travel/active-travel-for-schools/school-crossing-supervisors).
