Not very flash

I WAS surprised to read of Transport Minister Dean Nalder�s feel-good announcement that the State Government will spend $20 million to install flashing 40km/h signs at schools.

The Government�s record in the Fremantle area is poor. There is only one school that has flashing signs, located on Forest Street.

Busy East Street was promised a sign, as was Fremantle Christian College on Rockingham Road, but they haven�t gone up yet.

Rather than making flashy announcements for the media, the Minister could make sure these signs actually start flashing at Freo schools soon.
