Nike Free 5.0 Dam Caloundra Road speed limit campaign successful
Speed limit raised fro 80 kph to 100kph
Nike Free Run 3 The inconsistent speed limit of Caloundra Road is about to change following the announcement that a local community campaign to change the speed limit has been successful.
am pleased to announce that we have been successful in our campaign to have the speed limit increased on Caloundra Road, between Racecourse Road and the Kawana Way Link Road, from 80 km/h to 100 km/h, Mr Bleijie said.
Mr Bleijie said that the speed limit of Caloundra Road was an issue for many local residents and tourists who regularly use the main access road in and out of Caloundra.
previous two lane Caloundra Road was a goat track, with no kerb and channelling in some places and yet it was able to sustain a speed limit of 100 km/h, Mr Bleijie said.
positive announcement follows the community based campaign, which included the tabling of a Parliamentary petition signed by 1542 residents.
petition called for a more consistent speed limit on a 1.4 kilometre section of the new four lane arterial road.
Nike Free Run 3.0 has been a long campaign by the community and I am glad to see a common sense solution to what has been a source of great frustration for motorists.
Nike Free 5.0 Herr we launched the petition, there were a few knockers telling us that we would never get the speed limit changed but this result just shows what you can achieve when a community gets behind a particular issue.
am advised that the Department will continue to monitor this section of the road once the new speed limit is in place, Mr Bleijie said.
