Drivers warned over new Frank Sound school zone
(CNS): Drivers are being alerted to the creation of a new school zone along Frank Sound Road in North Side in preparation for the opening of the new Clifton Hunter campus. The National Roads Authority (NRA) will start work this week on the zone to accommodate school traffic and ensure the safety of students when the school opens at the end of August. The school zone will include a 970 ft turning lane as well as the smoothing of the kink in the road to allow for better visibility. “School zones are an essential safety feature at our schools," said NRA Transportation Planner Marion Pandohie.
“It is designed primarily to slow down traffic, giving drivers more time to recognize and react to situations requiring slowing, stopping or evasive action,” the NRA official added.
A school zone begins at the School Speed 15 MPH when flashing sign and ends at the End School Zone sign.
“With the school opening, the Frank Sound Road will also see an increase in traffic. In this regards, lower speed limits on the surrounding roads will increase safety of students and parents, especially at pick up and drop off times,” Pandohie explained.
The new school zones were set in place in coordination with the Ministry of District Administration, Works, Lands and Agriculture, the police and the schools. The project is set to be completed prior to the school’s opening.
