School Traffic and Parking Bottle necks
With the increase in numbers of students attending Melville Senior High School, parking difficulties and traffic jams are worsening. What can be done to ease your congestion?
Parents who drop off:
• If you drive along Leach Hwy off consider dropping students south in Winnacott St at the overpass. Students must use the footbridge and you can avoid the traffic in Potts St.
• If you drive via Marmion St, make the drop off a few blocks from the school to avoid traffic right outside the school.
• The staff car park CANNOT be entered to drop students at school.
• Encourage walking, riding or bus.
Why not drop your child at one of the bus stops? Most of the buses drop the students outside the school or at the overpass so they don’t have to cross a single road.
