COLOURFUL shapes on Oakmont Avenue near the Meadow Springs Primary School zone are hoped to provide a visual cue for motorists to slow down.

City of Mandurah spokeswoman Helen Truscott said the colourful entry to the school zone was a first for Mandurah.

�We hope this trial of colours on the road will draw driver�s attention to the fact they are entering a school zone,� she said.

It is hoped drivers will see the colours on the road and reduce their speed.

The colourful patterns work in conjunction with the 40kmh school zone sign posts flanking the road.

The trial is a RoadWise Committee initiative.

The City of Mandurah committee continue to drive home road safety messages in partnership with police, emergency services personnel and other local groups demonstrating their commitment to road safety.

Members work with our community to inform and educate about safe road use, safe roads, safe speeds and safe vehicles endeavouring to reduce the number of accidents and their impact on the community.
