The lights at the intersection of Otto, Mountain and Gehrke roads, at Plainland, are the fifth set of lights for the Lockyer Valley.

The new lights are one step closer to the completion of the region’s newest secondary college.

Sophia College, a catholic secondary school, is expected to welcome its inaugural students this month when school returns.
