Chancellor State School – Traffic Solutions POLL

Chancellor State School – Traffic Solutions POLL

This POLL is designed to measure usage of the 3 proposed solutions being explored by Cr Christian Dickson​:

A. The existing loop back to University Way to exit the area with the addition of Traffic Lights

B. The one way Bus Lane to get through to Sippy Downs Drive to exit the area

C. The one way road to get through to Colombia St / Parkville Street to exit the area

All data is available LIVE one the poll is completed!

NB: We are also working on the exploration of all of the potential additional solutions raised by you, the community.

This poll in no way precludes more solutions being explored and delivered. The more solutions that can be delivered the better the overall outcome will be in reducing traffic congestion.

Scholars Drive Primary School Parking & Traffic Issues – 21 March 17

Scholars Drive Primary School Parking & Traffic Issues – 21 March 17

Following a lot of conjecture in the community about what is happening in relation to traffic & parking at Chancellor State Primary School (in Scholars Dr, Sippy Downs) and the overflow parking issues that plague the local community at pick up times for students, we arranged an interview with (Councillor) Cr Christian Dickson to see where he is at in delivering much needed solutions.

We urge all members of the community who may be affected by parking and traffic problems to watch this interview to ensure you are up to date with the current progress and fully aware of potential issues and possible action that may need to be taken to deliver real solutions.

As discussed in the interview we will present a progress update in a few weeks.

Parking is “Super Dangerous”

Parking is “Super Dangerous”

This photo was taken today in Brunswick Place Sippy Downs at 2:50 p.m. sent to us by local resident Britt Cook who stated in her message “Absolute joke when parents of the schools around Sippy Downs don’t understand that parking this way is dangerous, super dangerous.. something needs to be done asap or there will be an accident!”

We agree but following local social media we note that parents picking up kids simply don’t have enough parking available to them when picking up kids at Chancellor State School Primary campus.

Britt tells us that she has lived in Columbus Street and in Brunswick place for the last 5 years and this issue is getting worse and worse by the day

From her perspective the roads are just not developed properly for the amount of car congestion especially at school pickup and dropoff time, a point that is hard to argue with.

Brit went on to tell us that she has seen so many near accidents occur while she was walking home from uni and driving around the area at this time she finds it disturbing.

Britt went onto say that the issues caused by the lack of local parking also disrupt families living in the area.

We are aware that the areas local government Representative Counselor Christian Dickson has been working very hard on a number of potential solutions. We have spoken to Mr Dickson and we look forward to presenting this information including an interview with Cr Christian Dickson very soon.

Emily will be cutting 30cm off her hair for the World’s Greatest Shave

Emily will be cutting 30cm off her hair for the World’s Greatest Shave

Local resident and Chancellor State School student Emily has decided to participate in the World’s Greatest Shave fundraiser and will be cutting 30cm off her hair so Sippy Downs and district residents we are calling on you to support this young lady to achieve a fundraising goals for this fantastic cause.

  • Cutting her hair is a big deal as she loves her long, thick hair and doesn’t even like to have it trimmed – so for a teenage girl this has been a BIG decision, not made lightly, but for a great cause!
  • Emily said to family and friends, “cancer patients don’t have a choice re their hair when going through chemotherapy – I have a choice and it is something positive I am able to do to help out” – even though she doesn’t really want to cut it.
  • Money raised goes towards cancer research and services
  • Emily’s hair will go to make a wig for a cancer patient.
