School zone extension for Holy Family Primary School
11 January 2017
Motorists are advised of changes to the school zone later this month for Holy Family Primary School, Emerton.
A Roads and Maritime Services spokesperson said the 40 km/h school zone will be installed along Luxford Road for a length of 120 metres to cover the active access point along this street.
“Roads and Maritime Services reviewed the school zone after a request from Blacktown Council,” the spokesperson said.
“After discussions with the school, it was proposed the existing school zone be extended along Luxford Road as the access point along Luxford Road was not covered with the existing school zone.
“In general 40 km/h school zones are provided on roads with an active direct access point from the school.
“The 40km/h school zone will operate between 8am and 9.30am and 2.30pm to 4pm on gazetted school days.
“The new school zone signs are expected to be installed on Tuesday 24 January 2017, weather permitting.”

Motorists are reminded to drive to speed limits at all times for the safety of all road users.
