THE trial of the extended shared zone along Palmerin St started yesterday with Southern Downs Regional Council workers putting up new road signs and creating temporary median strips.

For the next 12 month motorists are required to travel at 25km/h along Palmerin Street between the Percy and Victoria St and giveway to any pedestrians crossing the road.

The decision of a shared zone was reached as a compromise between the council, nearby businesses and Warwick State High School.

WSHS proposed a zebra crossing or designated crossing area outside the school to make it safer for students to cross the road.

A zebra crossing would take away up to 13 carparks from the surrounding business.

The decision for a trial did not have the support of all the councillors with Crs Glyn Rees, Jo McNally, Jamie Mackenzie and Cameron Gow against the trial.
