State Government and Adelaide City Council to jointly fix Adelaide High School’s pedestrian crossing

The riskiest school crossing in Adelaide will get a major safety upgrade, under a deal between the State Government and Adelaide City Council.

The two tiers of government have agreed to fix the West Tce junction in front of Adelaide High School, which links Currie St with Glover Ave.

They have each committed $500,000 to the project, although a start date is yet to be set.

Last year research by Carnegie Mellon University, in conjunction with the State Government, revealed the crossing was the most risky traffic location for Adelaide students, recording scores of crashes each year.
