Member for Shellharbour, Anna Watson MP, advises that Roads and Maritime Services will be undertaking routine maintenance of flashing lights signage in the vicinity of Oak Flats Public School, as part of the NSW School Zone Flashing Lights program to improve the safety for students in the area.

Work is scheduled to commence on Wednesday 1 November 2017 and is expected to be completed by Monday, 6 November 2017. Workers will be on site for two shifts, weather permitting, between the hours of 7am and 5pm, from Monday to Friday and between 8am and 1pm on Saturday.

The work will be carried out so that it does not impact the operation of school zone flashing signs around Oak Flats Public School.

It is expected that there will be some footpath and lane closures while work is carried out, with signposting and detours in place when required. Some parking spaces may also be unavailable whilst the work is being completed.

There will be minimal noise associated with this work.

Roads and Maritime currently manage over 5800 school zones flashing signs that keep school children safe across NSW. Installing flashing lights signage in school zones has led to improved driver awareness of driving at a lower speed to ensure the safety of children and people coming and going from the school area.
