After receiving a numerous complaints about speed and pedestrian safety along Beaudesert Road through the Moorooka Shopping Precinct; I have arranged for the installation of two 'Slow Down" LED Road signs.
One will be placed on the footpath outside 120 Beaudesert Road and one on the adjacent road island.
These signs will operate 24 hours a day and the installation of both signs is expected by mid December 2017.
The aim of the LED program is to reduce the number of accidents and near misses at known accident hotspots through the installation of highly visible LED road signs.
They are designed to activate (light up) when a vehicle is travelling above a pre-determined speed threshold on approach to the hotspot, warning them to slow down.
Their positioning is intended to reduce speed through the shopping precinct as motorists approach the pedestrian crossing near Manmeet's Paradise Memorial.
