SAPOL's mock roadway

The Road Safety Centre features a mock roadway where young cyclists learn about road and traffic safety in a safe environment. The mock roadway helps children to become familiar with:

  • correct road signage
  • pedestrian safety
  • road rules.

The roadway includes:

  • an intersection with traffic lights
  • pedestrian crossings
  • a roundabout
  • traffic signs.

The mock roadway is available for community use on weekdays from 8am to 10am and 2.30pm to 6pm (8pm during daylight saving) and on weekends from 8am to 6pm (8pm during daylight saving). It is available free of charge but you need to bring your own bike or scooter and safety equipment.

Please note that while these times are usually available, the mock roadway can still be required by SA Police for booked sessions during the above times and will not be available for public use. If the 'DO NOT ENTER' signs are up, please do not enter.

Call 8207 4668 to check availability.
