School support for walking and cycling

Overflowing bike shed

Indeed, cycling to school is so popular the bike shed is now overflowing.

Proposals

Students are asking for another bike shed at the rear entrance of the school.

Safe routes to schools and independent mobility for children can also be supported by converting LAPM 14 North Richmond into a 30 km/h superblock, linked to other neighbourhoods by a network of protected bicycle lanes.

Support from the school

The Richmond West Primary School Principal supports the call for safer streets:

Local champion

Your local champions for Richmond West Primary School are Xanthe and Theo, students at the school, who in particular would like a larger bike shed. View all of Streets Alive Yarra’s champions on our supporters page.

We love riding and scooting to school and would like cars to slow down and take more care around Richmond – our bike shed is so busy before and after school that it is sometimes hard to get a spot. We need another bike shed at the rear entrance of the school.
