The long-awaited zebra crossing is being installed between the two schools on Woodways, and the work appears to be progressing well.
Fears had been expressed that the project might seriously impede access to the Junior School grounds when preparation work for Summerfest is taking place, and perhaps (horror of horrors!) on the great day itself — Saturday 2nd July.
However, the contractors have so far done a very good job in minimising the disruption. Indeed, two-way traffic flows along Woodways have been maintained to date.
Even the footpaths have only suffered minor narrowing or short-term closure as the work to install new footpaths and lay 250 metres of electric cable alongside the path is being carried out.
So, to the contractors — thanks guys ... keep up
the good work!
