In a bid to stop drivers travelling at speed through its grounds, Two Wells Uniting Church has installed a chain barrier across the driveway which links Drew Street and Two Wells-Gawler Road.
“It’s not to stop people going through or visiting the Op Shop,” Uniting Church committee member, Pam Duncan, explained.
“We just want to stop cars driving through at unsafe speeds.
“It’s for the safety of people walking nearby.”
Pam said increased use of the thoroughfare by cars at high speeds had caused concern amongst church members and the barrier was suggested as a way of reducing the risk of a serious accident.
“This is not a road, but people have been using it as a shortcut when coming out from the school or going to the childcare centre,” she said.
“We would ask all people to be mindful of the barrier and of anybody walking in the area. We want to keep the area safe.”
• In other church news, Pam wished to thank the efforts of Roy Packer and Malcolm Wilson, who built a verandah to protect patrons entering the church’s side entrance.
A ramp to assist with access is also soon to be installed.
