SAFER SCHOOL STREETS BRUNSWICK

Walking and riding to school improves health, reduces traffic congestion and improves air quality.

This 2020 survey aimed to learn how many children walk, ride and skate to school, and to understand the safety concerns of parents. 

The findings showed that although a large proportion of families walk, ride or use other active transport, many still feel unsafe about their child walking or riding to school. 

This survey will be used to advocate the state government and Council to improve road safety around schools and promote health, clean air and active transport (walking or riding etc) in Brunswick. 

Tim has visited some danger spots near each school that were raised in the survey. See some of the key spots of concern in the map below.
