In response to ongoing concerns regarding accidents, near misses and complaints, Council has committed to the installation of highly visible LED road signage on Orange Grove Road at its intersection with Lillian Avenue, Salisbury.
This is part of Council's LED Road Sign Program to improve pedestrian and motorists's safety involving a commitment of $3.24 million over four years for this road safety initiative.
This is fantastic news for the residents of Salisbury and surrounding suburbs as this has been a known hot spot for a number of years.
The signs are designed so the LEDs activate (light) when a vehicle is travelling above a pre-determined speed threshold on approaching this zone.
If the vehicle is travelling under that threshold, the sign remains inactive.
They are solar powered and will operate 24 hours a day.
