Motorists encouraged to slow down on Monaro Highway at Cooma

22 August 2016

Motorists are advised to be aware of a speed change on a section of the Monaro Highway at Cooma, the Member for Monaro John Barilaro said today.

Mr Barilaro said the existing 100 km/h speed zone will be reduced to 80 km/h for more than two kilometres from around one kilometre south to about 1.5 kilometres north of Polo Flat Road at Cooma.

“A speed zone review of this section of the Monaro Highway was carried out earlier this year by Roads and Maritime Services after concerns were raised by community members,” Mr Barilaro said.

“It was determined the existing speed zone be reduced due to the combination of the road alignment and the number of intersections on this section of road.

“This change will be implemented from Tuesday 23 August and motorists are advised to slow down to ensure a safer environment for all road users.”

Electronic message signs are in place to inform motorists of the new 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 to have a say on speed limits.
