School Zones are enforced between the hours of
8am – 9:30am and 2:30pm – 4:00pm.
During the peak times of children arriving and departing from
school grounds, there is a 40km/h restriction to make the road safer for our
children. There are also specific restrictions on parking around schools at this
time to allow safer access for students.
