Community members are reminded to slow down ahead of the installation of a new 40km/h school zone on Fernadell Drive at Pitt Town to improve road safety at Pitt Town Public School.
Member for Hawkesbury Dominic Perrottet MP said the school zone would be installed tomorrow evening and speeds enforceable from Friday 8 April.
“Road safety around schools is a high priority for Roads and Maritime Services which is why local streets are continually monitored to determine whether school speed zones are required.
“Existing school zones of 40km/h are already in place on Buckingham Street at the front of Pitt Town Public School.
“The new 40km/h school zone will improve road safety for students using the recently built rear access gate to the school and provide motorists with advanced warning.
“The signs are expected to be installed on Thursday 7 April between 6pm and 10pm and once installed will be enforceable by NSW Police.”
