Safe school travel (SafeST) program

The safety of students travelling to and from school is one of the most important issues for school communities. One way this is achieved is by providing the safest possible journey to and from Queensland schools. The Department of Transport and Main Roads supports safe school travel with the SafeST program and resources.

Addressing school safety issues

Establishing a SafeST Committee is the first step in identifying and addressing school safety concerns. The SafeST Committee will develop a school road safety action plan for implementing strategies and solutions.

Ideally an action plan would outline:

  • what the school is planning to do to improve road safety
  • how it expects road safety will improve
  • how the school will monitor and evaluate the success of the plan
  • when it will be done
  • who is responsible for making it happen.

School road safety is a matter that requires whole of community awareness and commitment. Improving the safety of school travel for all children relies on the involvement and engagement of schools (including parents associations), local government and state authorities such as Education Queensland, Queensland Police Service, TMR and TransLink and/or bus operators as required.

Temporary closure of a section of Sippy Downs Drive (between University Way and Siena Catholic College) and traffic detour via Service Road.

Dear Sippy Downs Residents and interested stakeholders.

Thank you for your ongoing patience regarding construction of the Sippy Downs Drive Upgrade Project.  We will soon be issuing another construction update which will include news of the construction break over the Christmas and New Year period and details regarding next year’s 2019 construction program.

In the interim and as part of the project, Council must dig trenches across Sippy Downs Drive to install stormwater pipes.

To safely undertake this work a section of Sippy Downs Drive, between University Way and Siena Catholic College, must be temporarily closed to vehicle traffic for a period of one day, Saturday 24 November from 6 am – 5 pm (weather permitting).

On this day, light vehicle traffic will be redirected along the Sippy Downs Drive Service Road as one-way traffic. Buses and heavy vehicles will be detoured via an alternative route. University Way will remain open.

Please refer to the map below for more details.

The speed limit along the Service Road will be posted as 40 km per hour and signage and traffic control will help to redirect motorists.

The entry to Siena Catholic College will also be temporarily closed during this time. The project team thanks the School Principals and Parish Council for their assistance.

We thank you in advance for your understanding of these mandatory works and request that all motorists exercise additional caution when driving along the Service Road this Saturday.

Should you have any questions about this work, please feel free to contact us via the details below.

Yours sincerely,

Sippy Downs Drive Upgrade Team

Kangaroo Warning Signs At Sippy Downs A National First

Kangaroo Warning Signs At Sippy Downs A National First

Hi all,

Council has recently installed two Vehicle Actuated Kangaroo Warning signs on Sippy Downs Drive in response to concerns raised by the University of the Sunshine Coast and wider community about the kangaroo mortality rate in the area. 

The signs, which are an Australian first, have been installed at the locations shown in red circles on the attached plan. The signs have been tested and are operating as specified.

Council’s Graduate Engineer Alex managed the research, design and delivery of the signs and did a fantastic job. J1 LED was the successful tenderer and they worked closely with Alex to deliver the works.

These signs will work in partnership with the recently installed Kangaroo warning posts that emit both light and sound to keep Kangaroos away from our local roads in the precinct.

Kind regards,

Christian
