AN Adamstown woman who died after being hit by a bus full of school children on Tuesday afternoon has been identified as 35-year-old Raani Bennett.
Ms Bennett and her dog died after they were hit by the school bus on Brunker Road, near Mandalong Road, about 3.30pm on Tuesday
The bus was carrying 16 students, most from Merewether High School, at the time.
Heartfelt tributes to Ms Bennett have appeared on social media, as her devastated family and friends grapple with her sudden loss.
A number of tributes to Ms Bennett have also been placed at the scene of the accident, with shocked loved ones visiting the area adding flowers to a growing collection on the roadside.
Adamstown residents and workers said they had previously raised concerns about the safety of the section of Brunker Road where Ms Bennett died.
The Barn cafe owner Matt Austin, whose security cameras captured Tuesday's incident, said the speed of vehicles on Brunker Road was an ongoing issue.
"They put the speed hump in for a reason," he said. "I walk out of work every day at three of four o'clock and people definitely aren't doing [the signposted] 25 km/h over the pedestrian [crossing], it's more like 60 km/h."
