Improving School Travel

 

 

THE TRAVELSMART COMMITTEE NEEDS YOU!

 

The Mt Martha Primary School TravelSmart committee is appealing to the Mornington Peninsula Shire Council to install several footpaths on key student travel routes. These have been identified through mapping of student residence and observing students at travel times over a number of years.

 

We are seeking support from parents and community members for sealed footpath access  on the following roads:

 

Dominion Road - Bay Road to Glenisla Drive West

Orana Drive - Walara Drive to Legacy Drive

Glenisla Drive Eastern section - Dominion Road to Melrose Drive.

Ferrero Grove to Dickinson Grove

 

Currently our TravelSmart statistics show an increase of 20% in those choosing healthier alternatives. This has been achieved through the finalisation of one route and campaigning only. With further infrastructure support around footpaths we would envisage a further increase. This would have profound effects on parking around the school and would create a wonderful community atmosphere as students walk and talk their way to a better start to their day.

 

We are curently writing to council to have them consider these options. Check back here to see how we are doing!

 

Thank you for your support.
