Sassafras schools safer

New electronic speed signs have been installed at the prep-Year 12 Sherbrooke Community School and Sassafras Primary School.

The Andrews Labor Government is boosting safety for students, parents and teachers at two Sassafras schools with the installation of new electronic speed signs.

Member for Monbulk James Merlino switched on the new speed signs at Sassafras Primary School on Friday 3 May making it easier for drivers to see the speed limit and slow down around the school.

New electronic speed signs have also been newly installed at the prep-Year 12 Sherbrooke Community School.

Both schools are located on the popular Mt Dandenong Tourist Road which carries around 10,000 vehicles a day.

“We’re making sure our Sassafras schools are safer for everyone during school drop-off and pick-up,” said Mr Merlino.

“With the Dandenongs being such a popular tourist destination, these highly visible electronic signs will clearly identify school areas and warn drivers to slow down.”

A 40kmh school speed zone is in place around both schools between 8am and 9.30am and 2.30pm and 4pm on school days.
