Fast response to speed review


Nearly 2000 responses have been received for the speed limit review underway in Queensland


August 21, 2013

Thousands of Queenslanders have had their say on fast, slow, confusing or inconsistent speed limits after submissions on a state-wide speed limit review opened at the beginning of this month.

Nearly
2000 responses were received since the Speed Limit Review website went live and have been particularly aimed at the Bruce and Warrego Highways.

Transport and Main Roads Minister Scott Emerson says the review is to simplify speed limit setting process and improve speed limit consistency across the state.

He welcomes the strong public interest and
is encouraging
others to get involved.

"Community input will help pinpoint where speed limits may need to be reduced or increased," he says.

"We’re encouraging people to get involved in the process by nominating locations where they believe speed limits are too fast, too slow, too confusing or inconsistent."

The feedback will assist to identify Queensland’s top 100 roads for speed limit review and the results will be published online.

Submissions can be made online at http://www.tmr.qld.gov.au/SpeedLimitReview until midnight Friday September 13 or posted to Speed Limit Review, PO Box 673, Fortitude Valley Queensland 4006.
