Improving Safety at Normanhurst West Public School
27 February 2019
Safety for pedestrians and road users around Normanhurst West Public School will be improved, with new flashing light school zone signs to be installed along Sefton Road and Milson Parade.
Member for Hornsby Matt Kean MP said the new 40 km/h school zone flashing light signs will help ensure pedestrians are able to move around safely in the local area and alert motorists to slow down.
“The new flashing light signs will increase student, driver and pedestrian safety as well as create a more consistent road network for the Thornleigh and Normanhurst community,” Mr Kean said.
“The current school zone includes Dartford Road, west along Sefton Road to Lymoore Avenue and east along Milson Parade to Harris Road.
“Installing flashing light signs will help reduce vehicle speeds during school zone times and improve the road safety benefits of school zones.
Mr Kean said the new signs were installed by Roads and Maritime Services earlier this year.
“Motorists are reminded the 40km/h school zone speed limit is legally enforceable. The school zone operates from 8am to 9.30am and 2.30pm to 4pm on gazetted school days.”
The school zone was reviewed in accordance with the School Zone Guidelines. School zones are provided on roads with an active, direct access point from a school, and on roads where a Roads and Maritime School Crossing Supervisor works.
