TO: The Speaker and Members of the Legislative Assembly
The following residents of the ACT draw to the attention of the Assembly:

The section of Canberra Avenue between Hume Circle and Barrallier Street currently has a speed limit of 60 km/h. St Edmund's and St Clare's Colleges both border on this section of Canberra Avenue.

Many students from both colleges who reside on the Kingston side have to cross Canberra Avenue to get to and from school each day.

Students from both colleges also regularly cross Canberra Avenue to access cafes and other businesses on the Kingston side of Canberra Avenue.

Students and staff who use public transport have to cross Canberra Avenue to access the closest bus stop.

The nearest signalised crossings across Canberra Avenue are located at Nyrang Street, Narrabundah (1km East of St Edmunds) and Captain Crescent (1.2km West of St Edmunds).

Your petitioners, therefore, request the Assembly to call upon the Government to reduce the speed limit along Canberra Avenue between Barrallier Street, Griffith and Hume Circle (intersection of Canberra Avenue, Wentworth Avenue, and Sturt Avenue), Griffith, to 40km/h.
