Morning School Zone Time Change Welcomed

Posted on: Monday, 26 November 2018 at 12:00:00 AM

Road safety advocates across the Kimberley region have welcomed the change to morning school zone speed limits times.

The new morning school zone time (7:00am to 8:30am) was changed following extensive consultation with school principals, the Department of Education, Catholic Education Office, WA Police Force and Local Governments.

It is hoped the new school zone time and recently installed electronic signage will translate into increased safety for pedestrians and other road users within school zones. The new time better reflects the early school start times in the region.

There are no plans at this stage to change the afternoon times.
