Atherstone Gets its Own Traffic School
Lendlease will be funding a dedicated Traffic Education School right in the Atherstone community. Located adjacent to the Bridge Road Regional Play Space and Children’s and Community Centre, it is set to open in 2020.
The Traffic School at Atherstone will feature a simulated track including road signs and signals. The launch phase of the school will provide for 60 bikes so that groups of children can engage together in various learning activities. It will include an open air classroom in landscape surrounds as well as communal barbeque facilities and toilets.
Melton City Council will lead the design and deliver the facility which will be managed by a private operator to be sourced at a later date.
Matthew Wallace, Managing Director Lendlease Communities says, “The Traffic Education School at Atherstone will assist kids to develop road safety while honing their riding skills. We are sure our very active Atherstone community will embrace the use of this facility for active family fun with a purpose of teaching our kids how to stay safe.”
