Work to make it safer for Woodend School students and the community to cross SH1 has been completed.
Installation of new traffic signals outside the school was finished ahead of the start of the new school year.
Representatives from Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency, Fulton Hogan and Beca talked to some of the school’s student leaders about the project on Tuesday and made the first ‘official’ crossing.
Mayor Dan Gordon and School Principal Adrienne Simpson were also there to celebrate completion of the work and try out the new crossing. The temporary crossing, which was put in place in November when work started, has been removed.
