South Coast MP Shelley Hancock has referred the issue of road safety around Ulladulla High School to the RMS in the wake of the death of a schoolgirl on Wednesday.
While she won't comment on the circumstances of the accident until a proper investigation is complete, "What I have done this morning is refer this to the RMS for them to investigate the entire surrounds of Ulladulla High School and if there's anything we need to do, we will."
Mrs Hancock said the death of the schoolgirl, who was struck by a bus near the school around 3pm, had been uppermost in her mind all Thursday.
"As a former teacher, as a member of a very small community down there, I know it will shatter them," she said.
Mrs Hancock taught English at Ulladulla High between 1976 and 2002, when she resigned to begin her political career.
"The thing I thought of this morning was that bus crash at Wandandian, with the death of Christian Carruthers and how that still resonates."
The St John's student died in February 2001, when a car crossed to the wrong side of the road and collided with the school bus on which he was travelling.
"I still think about it a lot, about how the other kids were affected. I spoke to a lot of the kids after the accident and they were just shattered. Kids who witnessed all of this will be shattered for a long, long time.
"My heart just goes to the family and the whole Ulladulla community and the Milton community as well. I just haven't stopped thinking about it all day," Mrs Hancock said.
