Static school zone signs will replace 74 electronic signs for the short term

Seventy Four school sites will have their Electronic School Zone Signs temporarily replaced with static signs.  Main Roads will be contacting the affected schools on Monday and Tuesday next week. 

Main Roads Managing Director, Stephen Troughton, said "Extensive performance testing was undertaken before we selected the units, however problems have developed following installation of the signs on site.” 

"One of the problems relates to interference with communication networks. We are working with our suppliers to develop an urgent solution." 

This issue only relates to the electronic signs recently installed at 74 schools.  Electronic signs previously installed at 235 schools in metropolitan and country areas are not affected. 

Main Roads apologises for any inconvenience this will cause to schools, parents and motorists.
