Students at St Georges Basin Public School will soon benefit from improved safety with work to extend the existing school zone to start next week.

A Transport for NSW spokesperson said the 40 km/h school zone on Tallyan Point Road is being extended to include a pedestrian refuge that is regularly used by children and their parents to access the school.

“Children are among our most vulnerable road users and Transport for NSW is committed to ensuring they are able to travel safely to and from school every day,” the spokesperson said.

“The St Georges Basin Public school zone on Tallyan Point Road will be extended for an additional 220-metre length, including 45-metres west through to the intersection with Collingwood Street, as well as 60-metres south and 110-metres north of this location.”

The spokesperson said school zones are among the safest places on the NSW road network largely because of the infrastructure and programs in place.

“All schools in NSW have prominent signs, ‘dragon’s teeth’ road markings and flashing lights to improve school zone visibility and remind drivers that they must slow down to the reduced speed limit during school zone times,” the spokesperson said.

Work to extend the school zone will be carried out at night between 7pm and 2.30am from Sunday 2 to Thursday 6 June.

Day work will be carried out on Tuesday 11 and Thursday 13 June to relocate the school zone flashing lights.
