The ISF Academy, at Kong Sin Wan Road near Cyberport 1&2, has over 2000 primary and secondary school students and 500 staff. School bus utilisation is about 50%. Traffic is heavy at nearby junctions between 7:40 and 8am; as well as between 3:10 and 3:40pm. Cyberport tenants and carpark users, bus and minibus passengers and operators, get stuck in school traffic. The afternoon peak normally improves somewhat after 30 August 2021 as extended school activities start. The PE teachers of the school work hard to help manage the traffic as best as they can to minimize the congestion time.
Kennedy School, at Sha Wan Drive, is a primary school with 900 students. About 60% of them use the school buses. The lack of laybys near the school means school buses park along the road. Together with the parent cars, the traffic sometimes comes to a stand-still for a short period as is noticeable in complaints we receive from residents, minibus passengers and operators. The school works hard to minimize congestion using traffic wardens. They also remind parents to be considerate and to queue up from the north as the buses do, so that one lane is kept free as much as possible.
We are urging both schools to take a stronger stance on the use of school buses by their students. Your views are welcome via firstname.lastname@example.org
