Flashing lights to be installed at two M'boro schools

FLASHING lights will be installed on the school zone signs at Maryborough and Aldridge State High Schools.

Fraser Coast councillor Trevor McDonald said the council received a grant from the State Government to install the lights.

"The solar-powered flashing lights will be installed on top of the school-zone regulatory signs and will flash during school hours to warn motorists," he said.

Cr McDonald said the lights could not be installed at every school because of strict guidelines.

"They can only be installed on multi-lane roads or where the school is split across sites on either side of a road," he said.

"They will be installed on Kent St at Maryborough State High School and on Searle St at the Aldridge State High School."

Should the rules be changed to allow flashing lights on school-zone speed signs at all schools?
