H.T. Thrift Elementary School Travel Planning 2011/2012

H.T. Thrift Elementary

H.T. Thrift Elementary students walk and bike to school. To increase the number of students walking and biking, H.T. Thrift participated in School Travel Planning in the 2011-2012 school year, facilitated by HASTe.

H.T. Thrift Elementary is located at 1739 148 Street in South Surrey.

Engineering improvements

In 2014, we installed pedestrian signals on 148 Street at 17 Avenue and at 18A Avenue, to improve pedestrian safety for H.T. Thrift Elementary and Semiahmoo Secondary students.

In 2011, we banned stopping on the south side of 17 Avenue during school hours, to discourage jaywalking and improve student safety.

In 2010, we built speed humps on 17 Avenue in front of H.T. Thrift Elementary to raise driver awareness of the school zone and slow vehicle speeds.
