Flashing lights for Maryborough school

QUEENSLAND Transport Minister Scott Emerson has announced St Helen's State School near Maryborough will receive flashing school zone signs to better protect students.

Mr Emerson said, in his response to a Question without Notice tabled in State Parliament this week, the lights will be installed by June.

"The Queensland Government has approved a $10 million program to install flashing school zone signs at more than 300 risk-assessed school zones over four years," he said.

"These are being selected based on a detailed risk analysis of school zones in Queensland as well as some schools zones nominated by Members of Parliament.

"Priority has been given to school zones with a significant crash history, a high level of vehicle and pedestrian traffic, higher speed limits or visibility problems."
