Changes to parking on Rowe Street, Eastwood
Published on 11 April 2019
From Tuesday 30 April 2019, the Eastwood Public School "Kiss & Ride" will be relocated to Rowe Street opposite the school, between the fire station at Shaftsbury Road and the zebra crossing.
The new "Kiss & Ride" zone will operate from 8.30 - 9.30am and 3.00 - 3.30pm on school days. The old "Kiss & Ride" zone along the school and fire station frontages on Shaftsbury Road will be removed and become NO STOPPING at all times. You will no longer be able to stop on Shaftesbury Road.
There is a zebra crossing at one end of the new Kiss & Ride zone with traffic lights at the other end, where children can safely cross Rowe Street to and from the school.
How will these changes affect Rowe Street?
There will be additional cars and children in Rowe Street during drop off and pick up times. When driving in Rowe Street, be sure to watch out for children crossing at the pedestrian crossing and the traffic lights, and cars pulling out of the new "Kiss & Ride" zone.
The existing ½ hr parking on this section of Rowe Street will be changed to NO PARKING between 8.30 - 9.30am and 3.00 - 3.30pm on school days. Remember to move parked cars from this section of Rowe Street during these times.
Only parking on the commercial side of the street will be affected by the proposed changes.
If possible, try to avoid using Rowe Street between 3.00 - 3.30pm when traffic congestion will be at its peak, unless you are using the "Kiss & Ride" zone.
Council staff and school volunteers will be helping with the operation of the new "Kiss & Ride zone" and directing children to the crossing points in the first week.
