About the project

Council has jointly funded this project with the Queensland Government as part of the Partnering for Safer Schools program.

Works to improve and enhance safety at the drop and go facility involved:

  • transforming the existing drop and go into a slip lane into the new drop and go
  • creating a new, safer drop and go zone away from the main traffic of McCullough Street directly outside the school’s administration building and D block increasing the drop and go capacity
  • installing 15 formalised, angled car parks with line marking and signage
  • relocating the existing pedestrian crossing on McCullough Street, west of the new drop and go entry and exit
  • modifying the centre median island on McCullough Street
  • upgrading the pedestrian footpath around the drop and go zone.

Benefits

The project created short-term and long-term parking spaces to support the existing and future traffic demands of MacGregor State School, and improves pedestrian and traffic safety.
