The Palaszczuk Government has announced new flashing speed signs will be installed this financial year at St Kieran's Catholic School in Short Street.
Transport and Main Roads Minister Mark Bailey said the Mount Isa school is one of the recipients of the 2020/21 round of the Flashing School Zone Sign Program - a program which recently celebrated the installation of its 1000th zone at Beaudesert.
"From drivers to parents, carers and students, road safety in and around school zones is everybody's business," Mr Bailey said.
"Flashing signs play an important role in reminding drivers of the change in speed limits and to slow down in case they need to react quickly."
Mr Bailey said it was part of an almost $1 billion commitment for road safety across Queensland.
"The global economy has been hit hard by COVID-19, but Queensland's strong health response to-date means our state can kick-start the economy quickly, and get on with the job of rolling out a $23 billion pipeline of road and transport upgrades," he said.
Mr Bailey said the Department of Transport and Main Roads undertakes a detailed risk analysis to determine which areas at which schools receive flashing signs.
