Road safety centre

The Road Safety Centre at Thebarton Police Barracks offers traffic education programs and road safety presentations to schools, businesses and community groups.

Traffic education - SAPOL's mock roadway

Young cyclists learn about road and traffic safety in a safe environment. Our 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 road is available for community use on weekends and after 3pm on weekdays (including school holidays). It is available free of charge but you need to bring your own bike and helmet.

Please note the mock traffic lights are not in operation after hours and cannot be turned on using the phone number on the control box. If the 'DO NOT ENTER' signs are up, please do not use the mock roadway as it is booked for a session. Call 8207 6585 to check availability.

Download the mock roadway flyer for more information.
