More than 100 extra NSW schools will have flashing road lights installed outside their gates by 2014.

The creation of the 101 new illuminated school zones is in line with a government promise to have them present at each of NSW’s 1500 state schools by December 2015.

About 280 sets of flashing lights were instated last year.

Roads Minister Duncan Gay said a two-tiered system, including a new lights model and the current model, will be rolled out from 2014.

“The new model has slight modifications, but includes essential safety features such as back to base technology to allow for proactive maintenance and the remote adjustment of lights,” he said.
