When the new Remarkables Primary School in Frankton opens next month, pupils and parents will see measures have been put in place to ensure a safe trip to school.
Queenstown Lakes District Council travel demand project manager Rae-Anne Kurucz said new footpaths had been completed along Lake Avenue, a bus lay-by had been completed, along with a traffic light pedestrian crossing on State Highway 6 and parking management had been established around the school.
"We have had good support from the school, which is keen to establish a walk-to-school culture from the outset, which will be quite a change for parents accustomed to driving to Queenstown each day," Ms Kurucz said.
She said the council would also support the school in setting up a "walking bus" as part of the its travel plan.
