New electronic speed limit signs on Ballarto Road (Cardinia Primary School)

We’ve made it safer for school kids, parents and teachers travelling to and from Cardinia Primary School.

About the project

We have installed four new solar powered electronic speed limit signs at the current school speed zone on Ballarto Road, near Beazley Road and Dalmore Road.

The electronic speed limit signs will remind drivers that they are entering the school speed zone for Cardinia Primary School and they need to slow down to 40km/h during school drop off times (8am-9.30am) and school pick up times (2.30pm-4pm).

New static signs have also be installed leading up to and throughout the area to inform drivers entering the school speed zone.

Project background

The Australian and Victorian Governments have invested $19.5 million in the Pedestrian and Safer Schools Program, improving safety near schools and shopping strips across metropolitan Melbourne and regional Victoria.

The program is part of a $97.2 million Targeted Road Safety Works program to create local jobs and support economic recovery from the coronavirus (COVID-19).

Benefits

These works will:

  • improve safety for vulnerable road users such as school children, shopping customers, pedestrians and cyclists.
  • reduce the likelihood and severity of crashes, should they occur.
