College students’ safety secured
Posted at 8:00am Monday 22 Feb, 2021
Mahurangi College has a new pedestrian crossing, near the intersection of Woodcocks Road and Morrison Drive.
For the last two years, teachers have been voluntarily standing near the intersection wearing high vis and waving to drivers to slow them down as children cross.
Sophie Townsend, 12, said crossing the road made her daily walk to school daunting.
Auckland Transport came to the party and built a crossing at the end of last year, at the college's request.
