Richmond West Primary School is one of more than 30 schools, TAFEs or universities in Yarra:
Richmond West Primary School is located on Lennox Street, in Local Area Place Making (LAPM) area #14 North Richmond.
School support for walking and cycling
Overflowing bike shed
Indeed, cycling to school is so popular the bike shed is now overflowing.
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:

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.Xanthe and Theo
