Chewton Primary School students are enjoying the safety benefits of a new bus bay, entrance steps and footpath following an upgrade project by Mount Alexander Shire Council.

The works were completed over the September school holidays to reduce the impact on students, staff and parents.

Council worked with staff and the local community to identify the project and come up with a solution that improved road and pedestrian safety along Hunter Street.

“Bus safety has been an increasingly challenging situation for our school,” explained Julie Holden, Principal Chewton Primary School.

“We can now safely load children on and off the bus and families are now clear about where they are allowed to park,” she said.

Chewton Primary School is a thriving school that is growing each year. The new entrance will accommodate a further increase in student numbers whilst maintaining pedestrian and cyclist safety.

Council received a $42,000 grant through TAC Local Government Grants Program to assist fund the project.
