Eight schools in St George and Sutherland Shire are among more than 100 throughout the state to receive additional flashing lights in a new round of installations.

Roads Minister Melinda Pavey made the announcement with Miranda MP Eleni Petinos at Taren Point Public School.

Ms Pavey said the new lights were in addition to those installed since January at 400 schools. 

“The $5 million program, which will be completed in July, is running on time and under budget allowing for the installation of these extra lights at 104 schools across the state,” she said.
