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
