Melbourne High School electronic speed limit signs

As part of the $5 million School Area Safety Fund, the Victorian Government is making it safer for kids to get to school, by installing new electronic speed signs near 39 schools across the state.

About the project

We will be replacing existing static signage on Alexandra Avenue near Melbourne High School with four new solar-powered electronic speed limit signs.
Installing new electronic speed signs will:

  • Increase driver awareness of speed changes during school drop off and pick up times; and
  • Improve safety for students, parents, teachers and the local community

How will these works impact you? 

We expect to commence work in mid-November and be completed by late November 2019. The signs will be turned on in mid-December.

Our crews will be on site from Monday to Friday, between 10:30am - 2:30pm to minimise disruption during busy times.

To keep everyone safe, we will need to:

  • Temporarily close a lane of traffic 
  • Reduce speeds to 40km/h around the work zone
  • There may be some noise
