The Mount Eliza Primary School community is celebrating after winning a long battle to improve safety around school pick-up and drop-off times.

Families are now able to safely drop off and collect their children thanks to a new asphalt carpark on Canadian Bay Rd, with space for at least 40 vehicles. The Federal Government invested $280,000 in the project and Mornington Peninsula Shire contributed $70,000.

It’s a development that Room to Move steering committee chairwoman Claire Sullivan described as a reminder “not to underestimate our individual capacity to create change for the better”.

“For decades, parents at Mount Eliza Primary School have complained about the congestion,” Ms Sullivan said. “A school newsletter from June 1972 refers to the problem at the time. A number of problems have confounded the chaos that has occurred during drop-off and pick-up times. These issues include the fact that the school remains uncapped and unzoned.  It is a school where an 80km/h, six-lane highway was not originally intended to be later built around it.”

The carpark was opened on March 2. “During the election campaign, (Dunkley federal Liberal MP) Chris Crewther was the only candidate who took the time to listen and understand the issue of concern,” Ms Sullivan said.  “With his pledge of funds at the time, and the support of his voters, the local parent community have come to benefit from his tireless efforts to see this venture come to fruition.”

Mornington state Liberal MP David Morris described the carpark as a significant win for the school community. “This carpark is vital for the safety of drivers, parents and students of the schools in Mount Eliza, in particular Mount Eliza Primary School,” Mr Morris said. “It will also ease congestion on Nepean Highway during school pick-up and drop-off times.”
