Motorists encouraged to slow down on Nerriga Road at Corang Bridge
Wednesday 7th October 2015
Motorists are encouraged to slow down on Nerriga Road at Corang Bridge with the speed limit to be reduced in October.
The Member for Monaro John Barilaro said Roads and Maritime Services carried out a review of the speed limit on the road as part of an ongoing speed zone review program after a request from the community and Palerang Council.
“A structural report prepared by council recommended reducing the speed limit on the bridge until council carries out work to improve its long term performance,” Mr Barilaro said.
“The bridge is still safe for motorists and the speed limit will be implemented to ensure its longer term viability and safety.
“The speed limit will be reduced from 100 km/h to 60 km/h along a 500 metre section about eight kilometres south of Oallen Ford Road to around 8.5 kilometres south of Oallen Ford Road at Corang.
“Roads and Maritime will continue to work with Palerang Council to monitor the condition of the bridge.”
The new speed limit will apply from Wednesday 7 October. Signs will also be in place to remind motorists of the changed speed limit.
Members of the community can sign up at the Safer Roads NSW website to receive updates about changes to permanent speed limits in their nominated area and have their say on speed limits.
