Status 

Renewal works have commenced onsite at Kew Traffic School. The facility is now closed to the public. 

Plans for the site have been developed based on feedback from Kew Traffic School users, as well as the need to improve storage for our road safety education program.  

About the project 

Kew Traffic School offers a high quality road safety education program to children in our community. The site will undergo renewal works in 2020 to replace existing, aged facilities. 

Key features of the upgrade include:

  • a new, larger party room with access to a covered outdoor seating area
  • a new bike storage shed with an attached maintenance workshop.

These renewal works will modernise and refresh the facilities and ensure we can deliver an improved experience at this much-loved community facility.

The project will cost $697,500.
