The Kew Traffic School has reopened its door after its recent renewal and is hosting a special education session on Thursday 25 August to celebrate.
The much-loved Kew Traffic School experienced a comprehensive upgrade over a six week period and reopened just in time for the June school holidays.
The renewal works introduced new driveways, an off-road track and a “bike-ed” skills development area.
Popular features like the road layout, pedestrian paths and crossings were improved and historic elements such as the railway crossing, train, tram and “play huts” were renovated.
Mayor of Boroondara, Councillor Jim Parke says the upgrade reflected the changing conditions of our roads and will provide children with valuable knowledge about road safety.
“Kew Traffic School is one of our most popular recreation facilities so it was important to Council that the facility received extensive improvements that reflect its important role in our community,” Councillor Parke said.
“The renewal works have improved the facility and will enhance the delivery of our Safety Education Program and school holiday activities.”
Established more than 60 years ago, Kew Traffic School continues to help children gain confidence and develop road safety skills away from the dangers of our roads through a range of fun activities and classes.
The Kew Traffic School will be closed to the public for the celebratory open day but is currently open for bookings.
A Ride ‘n’ Scoot day is also scheduled for 28 October to celebrate Children’s Week and will allow more families to test out the newly improved facility.
