School Zone Infrastructure Sub Program

The School Zone Infrastructure Sub Program is making it safer for pedestrians on their way to and from school, and when walking within school zones. It is part of the $540 million NSW Federal Road Safety Program.

Over 500 projects with a combined worth of over $40 million will deliver improvements in and around more than 350 schools throughout regional NSW.

These works are creating safer pedestrian connections for children, their parents and carers, and the school community, and include:

  • improved signage and line-markings
  • new and upgraded footpaths, and
  • upgraded and new treatments such as zebra and raised pedestrian crossings (wombat crossings), pedestrian fencing, kerb ramps, guttering and lighting.

These road improvements can help save lives by reducing car speeds within school zones and giving pedestrians safe route options when walking to and from school.
