The Queensland government is rolling out a $10million plan to install flashing lights outside schools across the state in order to protect the health and safety of young children throughout the region. One of the schools involved is Burpengary Meadows State School, which could be encouraging for local residents of real estate in Burpengary.
Premier Campbell Newman said the plan is for these lights to all be rolled out by mid-2015, with 195 schools having already received these lights over the last two years. An additional 151 schools will have their lights installed by June 2015.
"We promised to roll out this $10million program of flashing school lights over four years and we are on track to reach that target a year early," said Mr Newman on 14 October.
These lights aim to provide peace of mind for parents and children alike, bringing attention to the local infrastructure and helping to encourage people to reduce their speeds when passing education schools in Queensland.
