Flashing lights for every Blue Mountains school

29 January 2015

Member for Blue Mountains Roza Sage has announced all schools in the Blue Mountains local government area will soon have a set of flashing lights.

A further 14 Blue Mountains schools had flashing lights installed during the holidays with the remaining two set for delivery in coming weeks.

“I am proud to be delivering this great win for the safety of Blue Mountains school students,” said Mrs Sage.

“The NSW Liberals & Nationals Government has committed $32 million to ensure every school in NSW has a set of flashing lights.

“No government in the history of this great state has delivered this level of safety for our schools and I am proud we are delivering on our commitment for the Blue Mountains.

“We have now delivered a set of flashing lights for 24 schools in the Blue Mountains in just four years.

“The former Labor government installed a pitiful seven sets of flashing lights over 16 years in the Blue Mountains.

“Labor showed absolute disregard for road safety, proving it can’t be trusted to protect Blue Mountains children.”

Flashing lights have been installed over the Christmas break at Blue Mountains schools including:

  • Mount Riverview Public School
  • Our Lady of the Nativity Primary School, Lawson
  • Kindlehill School, Wentworth Falls
  • Leura Public School
  • St Canice's Primary School, Katoomba
  • Warrimoo Public School
  • Wentworth Falls Public School
  • Katoomba Public School
  • Katoomba North Public School
  • Mountains Christian College
  • M.E.T. School – Mt Victoria Campus
  • Glenbrook Public School
  • Lapstone Public School
  • St Finbar's Primary School

“This major NSW Liberals & Nationals Government program will be completed in the Blue Mountains in coming weeks with the final installations at Blue Mountains Grammar Preparatory School and Blue Mountains Steiner School,” said Mrs Sage.
