Vehicle and pedestrian safety will be improved on Mount Gambier’s busy Ramsay Avenue following community feedback. Mount Gambier City Council will make the changes in coming months, according to council’s Infrastucture general manager Nick Serle. “Ramsay Avenue is a busy road for businesses and the surrounding residential area and is used as a thoroughfare to and from Jubilee Highway East,” Mr Serle said.
“As a result of community feedback, traffic calming/channelling devices, specifically two lane angled slow points, will be installed on the curve of Ramsay Avenue outside Akuna Kindergarten. “Line-marking and signage outlining on street parking restrictions will also be installed as part of this project.
“In addition, council will extend the council owned car park next to Akuna Kindergarten to include 15 additional car spaces. “The extension of the car park will ease parking issues in the area and provide a safe drop off and pick-up area for the kindergarten.”
