Member for Mulgoa, Tanya Davies MP has announced two Mulgoa school zones have been upgraded with the installation of new flashing lights.
The new lights have been installed at Regentville Public School and Christadelphian Heritage College as part of a state-wide roll out of flashing lights at 400 schools zones.
“These new lights will help ensure that drivers are reminded to slow down and be mindful there are children around,” said Tanya Davies.
“This is a big win for Mulgoa schools. There’s nothing more important than making sure our kids are safe, especially when they are making their way to and from school.”
The upgrades are part of the state-wide Roads and Maritime School Zones Networks which aims to improve the safety of students and their families around local schools.
In 2013 the NSW Government announced the expansion of the school zone flashing lights program to ensure every school in NSW had at least one a set of flashing lights.
The program has now been completed with more than 1700 schools across the state receiving a set of flashing lights by the end of 2015.
