SCHOOL SAFETY BOOST FOR NICKLIN

12th July 2021

Nicklin school children will soon be safer as they arrive at school, with the 2021-22 round of Flashing School Zone Signs announced today.

Member for Nicklin, Rob Skelton said that local students would benefit from the installation of new flashing school zone signs.

“From drivers to parents, carers and students, road safety in and around school zones is everybody’s business,” Mr Skelton said. 

“The Palaszczuk Government is committed to providing safe road environments for our children as they travel to and from school.

“School zones play an important role in promoting safety and actively remind drivers of the change in speed limits around schools.”

Mr Skelton said Noosa Christian College (Cooroy) will benefit from the latest round of signs, with solar-powered signs to be installed on Cooroy Belli Creek Road.

“I’m proud that the Palaszczuk Government is continuing to deliver for Nicklin.

“And with Term 3 starting today this is a great reminder for all of us to obey school zones and slow down around pedestrians.

“These signs are funded through our record investment in road safety across Queensland – almost $1.7 billion.”
