Rural schools programme

Rural schools face road safety issues that are different from those of urban schools. Many rural schools are located in high speed environments, have limited off-road parking and little footpath connectivity. Most rural schools have school buses and congestion issues during before and after school at pick up time.

Our rural schools programme aims to address these unique challenges.
