Tweed deputy mayor Michael Armstrong has announced that a much-needed audit of roads, footpaths, and pedestrian crossings in local school zones in the shire has been approved.
He said it was a commitment he had made during the council election and it was ‘extremely pleasing to have been able to deliver upon it’.
‘Tweed Shire Council supported my motion to audit our school zones to make sure our kids are safer. The important role the Tweed Shire Council can play in supporting our local schools was a part of Tweed Labor’s election campaign.
‘The audit will be completed before the commencement of the 2013 NSW school year.
‘Putting the needs of local families and children first is an important part of making sure that the Tweed Shire continues to reflect local needs.
‘By conducting an audit we can make sure that everyone has equal safe access to our local schools and to show clearly our community’s support for the important role schools play in our community,’ said Cr Armstrong.
