Road Safety Boost for Mirboo North Primary School
Improving safety around Mirboo North Primary School and Mirboo North Secondary School with electronic speed signs.
By Portal Admin - 12th November 2018 - Back to News
The Andrews Labor Government is improving safety around Mirboo North Primary School and Mirboo North Secondary School by introducing electronic speed signs to help keep kids safe.
The $108,000 investment will replace the existing static school speed zone signs on the Strzelecki Highway with new electronic 40km/hr signs, making it easier for drivers to identify and slow down when entering the school zone.
More than 4,000 vehicles use this section of Strzelecki Highway every day.
The upgrade will help address safety concerns of the school community and increase awareness of school speed zones for drivers.
The new signs will be operational for the first school day of term one 2019.
These improvements are being delivered as part of the Labor Government’s $5 million school road safety package, aimed at improving high-risk roads near local schools.
This road safety package was announced in the Victorian Budget 2018/19 and delivers upgrades, crossing improvements and electronic speed limit signs at school zones throughout Victoria.
The new electronic signs compliment a new safer speed limit on the Strzelecki Highway through the Mirboo North township, which was introduced at the start of October.
The new 50km/h safer travel speed through the town centre is in place of the existing 60km/h speed limit and will create safer conditions for pedestrians.
