Why couldn’t they just mount it on the handrail of the bridge?

you’ll probably find that the sign needs to be a minimum distance from the road, and the bridge rail is too far.

In that case couldn’t they have started the School Zone from before the beginning of the bridge where they might have had spare land to put the sign or build the path around the sign?

The sign does DOES look like it has a bit of a lean on it but it COULD be just the angle the pic was taken at.

Common sense isn’t very common these days.

Bah that’s nothing, at least there’s a path, I’ve seen a pedestrian crossing that connects to nothing on either side of the road.

At the intersection of Majura Road and Fairbairn Ave? You often see people wading through the grass around there.

Badimara street and hindmarsh drive actually.

‘Yes, Melissa, you lost your eye to the school safety sign. That’s called eye-rony.’

Perhaps when they open that part of the road they can give out free eye patches with give way and look to the right on them!

I imagine it’s scrupulously compliant with a number of standards.

Perhaps the Emperor with new clothes works in a certain govt department.

@Gerry-built I know what I meant! But I do know what the word plumb means, I am a qualified electrician, I just get a bit dyslexic with words sometimes for some reason. This is the magic of Matt31221.

It is not plumb! The photo is skew but it doesn’t look plumb.

I am driving out to take a photo with a level on this pole as I live nearby, could you please post it JB when I have sent it?
