The 63 Queensland school zones where it's always 40km/h

DRIVERS beware - these are the school zones where the speed limit is 40km/h most of the day.

Reduced speed limits in most school zones only operate between between 7am and 9am and between 2pm and 4pm.

But there are 63 all-day school zones, usually 7am to 4pm, spread across the state.

These 63 zones are found around split-campus schools (scroll down to see full list).

According to the Department of Transport and Main Roads a split-campus school has facilities such as buildings, sports ground and swimming pool, which are separated by a road.

"To access the split facilities, students need to frequently cross the road throughout the school year," a Transport and Main Roads spokesperson said.

"Where split campus schools exist, the road safety risk to students is increased.

"It is important motorists are aware of these schools and expect students to cross the road during the day.

"To minimise the risk to students, all split-campus schools in Queensland have a school zone that operates for the whole school day, usually 7am to 4pm, and have enhanced school zone signs installed which include flashing lights.

"In some regional areas, all-day school zones may operate at different times to match up with the standardised times for council.

"Drivers should also be aware that not all school zones are 40 km/h speed limits."
