Schools to Receive Important Road Safety Boost

16/01/2015

Student safety around local schools will receive a boost, under a commitment announced today by local LNP Members.

LNP Member for Pine Rivers Seath Holswich and LNP Member for Kallangur Trevor Ruthenberg announced that if re-elected on 31 January, additional flashing school zone signs will be installed at four more local schools.

Lawnton State School, Pine Rivers Special School, Kallangur State School and Narangba State School will all receive the signs if the LNP government and local LNP MPs are re-elected.

“The rollout of these flashing lights are significant road safety initiatives undertaken by the Newman LNP Government,” Mr Ruthenberg said.

“Anecdotal evidence shows that where these signs are operating, there are less speeding motorists through school zones, keeping our children safe.”

Mr Holswich expressed his concerns for the continuation of the program should Labor form government after the January 31 election.

“Labor have had three years to commit to the continuation of the flashing school zone sign rollout, but they have remained silent,” Mr Holswich said.

“Labor have shown they have no plan for Queensland’s economy, no plan for Pine Rivers and Kallangur and no plan to improve student safety at our local schools.”

“Only the LNP has a strong team with a strong plan to keep our students safe on local roads.”
