Road safety upgrade due to start

AN $80,000 upgrade to improve road safety at Killarney State School will start next week.

Main Roads Minister Craig Wallace said the upgrade was the result of consultation between the school and the department.

"We will install LED school zone signs and reflective road markers also known as cats eyes on Acacia Street," Mr Wallace said.

"The works funded by the State Government's Safer Roads Sooner Program will be complete next month, weather permitting" he said.

"I am pleased of the positive partnership with Killarney State School which helped these safety improvements become a reality.

"The two eye-catching LED signs outside the front of the school will display the school zone times and also flash during these hours as an extra reminder to motorists to reduce their speed.

"I'd like to take this chance to remind motorists that school zone speed limits are enforceable during designated school zone times," Mr Wallace said.
