Campbelltown residents are being urged to be wary of koalas crossing roads during the native animal’s breeding season.

From August to February male koalas become more active as they go in search of a female partner.

Campbelltown has one of the largest koala populations in the Sydney basin.

Warning signs have been erected at the intersection of Georges River Road and Junction Road, Ruse, to inform motorists of the potential hazard.

Leumeah High School and Ruse Primary School have also featured warning messages on their school notice boards.

A local resident phoned the Advertiser last week after they spotted a mother and a baby wandering along the road outside of Leumeah High School.
