Traffic is an issue at many schools. There is additional complexity at University Hill Elementary School due to the restrictions on parking on sidestreets. The parking lot is for the use of school staff, daycare staff and district staff during the school day.
Staff and parents have been working together to strategize about ways to alleviate traffic concerns. The RCMP is responsible for policing on the UBC endowment lands. In an effort to keep our children safe, they have issued tickets to drivers exceeding the speed on Chancellor Blvd., making U turns on Hamber Road and to parking on the sidewalk.
The following information was included in the first newsletter. Please review this information with your children and all of the drivers doing drop off or pick up in your family.
Families are encouraged to walk and bike to school. We are lucky to have the support of Mustafa Akhtar in his role as Coordinator of Community Programs and Outreach on the UBC campus.
BikewalkUBC is a local grass roots network formed by volunteers advocating for safe and convenient transport options around UBC Vancouver. While driving is already quite safe and convenient, people choosing to walk or cycle often face unnecessary obstacles and sometimes dangerous infrastructure. How do you use the roads around UBC? What problems do you encounter when walking or cycling? Let us know by pinning an issue or a suggestion on the map, help us build a community and participate in the discussion.
