Work will start sometime during the week commencing 18 November 2013, to install ‘flashing light school zone signs’ on Boundary Road. Once commenced, the installation should take 3 days and will be outside of school hours.
Rainworth State School was nominated to receive the new signs as part of a $10 million Queensland Government commitment to improve school road safety.
You will notice that the new signs look similar to standard school zone signs with the important addition of a red flashing ring around the speed limit, as well as two flashing yellow lights at the top of the sign. The installation of flashing light school zone signs is proven to improve visibility of school zones, serving as an active reminder for motorists to slow down.
So, next time you’re dropping off or picking up your child, keep an eye out for the new signs and make sure you stick to the signed speed limit.
