New speed limits for 2 local roads

speedoNew speed limits will be assigned to two of the region’s roads after the Moorabool council gained approval from VicRoads.

In Gordon – Cartons Road, between Foxes Lane and Old Cartons Road will change from 80kph to 60kph.

In Bacchus Marsh – Young Street, between Bennett Street and Lerderderg Street, will change from 50kph to 40kph.

Both sections of roads will have new limit signs installed for six months.

The new speeds will help make the areas around both roads safer for everyone. Some people may forget the new speed limits, so make sure you remind people you know of the changes so that they don’t get caught out, and of course you should always pay attention to road signs when you are driving so that you are travelling at the appropriate speed.

For further information about the changes it’s best to get in touch with the Moorabool council – www.moorabool.vic.gov.au.
