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.
