Councillor Seeks speed review

By Yarrawonga Chronicle

At Moira Shire Councils most recent ordinary meeting on July 22, Cr Peter Mansfield put forward a motion for RRV to review the speed limits on the Murray Valley Highway east of Yarrawonga from Woods Rd to Hogans Road.

“I feel this is the ideal time to review the speed limits as the speed limit will be changed during construction of the Woods Road roundabout,” Cr Mansfield said.

“Eighty km/h is totally unacceptable in this day and age with the traffic we currently have.”

Cr Kevin Bourke endorsed the recommendation and reiterated Cr Mansfield’s comments.

“This is such an important means for traffic and is a very congested area, I endorse a review into speed limit changes.”

The recommendation was carried with Moira Shire Council to contact VicRoads and Regional Roads Victoria on the matter.
