SPEED LIMIT INCREASED FROM 50 KM/H TO 60 KM/H ON BODALLA PARK DRIVE
Motorists are advised the speed limit on Bodalla Park Drive at Bodalla, has been increased from 50km/h to 60km/h.
Roads and Maritime Services carried out a review of the speed limit on Bodalla Park Drive following a request from local residents, who requested the default speed limit of 50km/h be amended to a sign-posted speed of 60km/h.
“The review assessed a number of factors including roadside development, traffic patterns, intersection locations and crash data,” a Roads and Maritime spokesperson said.
“It was determined a 60km/h speed limit was appropriate due to minimal pedestrian activity, spacing of driveway access and the lack of recorded crash history along the length of the road.
“As a result, the existing 50km/h speed limit will be increased to 60km/h along the 3.8 kilometre length of Bodalla Park Drive, from the Princes Highway to the end of the road.”
The speed zone change came into effect on Monday 25 June 2018.
Temporary changed traffic conditions signs will be in place on Bodalla Park Drive to advise motorists of the new increased speed limit.
