WAVERLEY: Three sections of Rocky Lake Drive in Waverley had crosswalk flags installed last month in partnership between Norm Collins of Crosswalk Safety and local community groups.

The flags were installed on March 3 at Rocky Lake Drive and Cobequid Road, funded between the Cobequid Community Health Board and Waverley Memorial Parent Teacher Organization. It followed monitoring of that area by resident Taryn Hayes.

At Rocky Lake Drive and Palmer Road, crosswalk flags were installed at that location, funded by local community business Rapco Safety Services. Hayes also had monitored this area.

The third installment of crosswalk flags in the community took place at Rocky Lake Drive and Fraser Drive, near the Waverley Legion. This was done through funding from the Legion, and at the initiative/monitoring by local resident Ralph Smiley.
