    Minister caves to pressure from locals

    Students and parents at Labrador State School will soon have a safer journey to and from school with the coming installation flashing school zone lights on Government Road at the school after a successful local petition.

    State Member for Broadwater, Verity Barton MP said it was pleasing to see the Minister back down from his previous position on the installation of the flashing lights.

    “This is an important piece of safety infrastructure for Labrador State School, which is why I had committed to it during the campaign.”

    “It is pleasing to see the Minister come to the table with the school now in the list of top 100 priorities for flashing light installation.”

    “Government Road is a busy thoroughfare, with heavy vehicle and foot traffic, and the installation of flashing lights on Government Road will see a safer environment for parents and students travelling to and from school.”

    The flashing school zone lights will be installed in the 2015-16 financial year as part of the ongoing program to enhance road safety at schools.
