Flashing school signs for Whites Hill State College and St James Primary School
New flashing school zone signs will be installed at Whites Hill State College and St James Primary School.
The 40km/h signs will be placed on Burn Street for Whites Hill State College, and Kirkland Avenue for St James as part of the latest round of the Palaszczuk Government’s $12 million Flashing School Zone Program.
Flashing signs play an important role in alerting motorists that they are entering a school zone, reminding drivers to slow down and keep an eye out for children.
“40km/h speed limits and flashing signs are proven to increase safety for our youngest Queenslanders,” Joe Kelly, Member for Greenslopes said.
“The local community has been very passionate in advocating for new flashing signs, and it’s great to be able to secure it for the school.
The signs will flash on school days and during school zone times, so motorists will be aware when children are likely to be around.
“Adhering to the speed limit is always vital. We urge all motorists to follow the road rules and help us create a safe environment for students when they are arriving and leaving school.”
