City-wide Schools Traffic Parking & Safety Review


In 2015, the Council engaged Tonkin Consulting, as its Lead Consultant and in partnership with GTA Consulting, to undertake a comprehensive review of traffic, car parking and safety adjacent to all schools located within the City of Norwood Payneham & St Peters.

The 16 schools included in the Schools Review are:

  • Marryatville High School
  • Marryatville Primary School
  • Mary MacKillop College
  • Norwood Primary School
  • Prince Alfred College
  • St Ignatius Junior College
  • St Joseph’s Memorial School (Kensington)
  • St Joseph’s Memorial School (Norwood)
  • St Joseph’s School (Payneham)
  • St Peters College
  • Trinity Gardens Primary School
  • Felixstow Community School

*The Kensington Centre is currently unoccupied but was included in the Schools Review as Pembroke College purchased the property just prior to the commencement of the Schools Review.

The key objective of the Schools Review, which was completed in June 2016, was to identify the various issues which require to be addressed for each school and recommend options in respect to how these issues could be addressed.

The Schools Review involved a comprehensive and complex process which incorporated, at each of the schools the collation and analysis of various data, including issues associated with morning and afternoon school peak times and consultation with a large number of stakeholders. The consultation process included liaison with representatives from the various schools, Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure (DPTI), Department of Education and Child Development, Catholic Education South Australia, the Association of Independent Schools of South Australia, South Australia Police and residents and business owners and operators directly affected by the proposed recommendations.
