State Government has announced funding to help Geelong’s council provide 20 extra school crossing supervisors in City of Greater Geelong.
Roads Minister Terry Mulder said the funding boost would arrive in the next financial year.
“The City of Greater Geelong has been allocated funding for an additional 20 supervisors on top of last year, providing for 178 supervisor subsidies,” Mr Mulder said.
Liberal Member for South Barwon Andrew Katos called the funding a “welcome boost for council” to provide more supervisors
“Better pedestrian safety at school crossings will give parents greater comfort knowing their children can cross roads safely on their journey to and from school.”
