Motorists traveling along the Warrego Highway between Morven and Charleville will soon see a speed limit increase to 110 km/h following a Department of Transport and Main Roads (TMR) audit in the area recently.
Road safety audits are carried out regularly to ensure speed limits are fitting for the road conditions, says Kym Murphy the Regional Director for TMR .
“Changes to road signs will happen progressively and are expected to be completed by late June.
“I urge motorists to adhere to these new speed limits, for their own safety and the safety of other road users.
The audit has found other changes in the south west will also take place ,with the Carnarvon Highway between Mungindi and Thallon also seeing an increase from 100km/h to 110km/h.
But the Carnarvon Highway, between St George and Surat, will see a decrease in the speed limit from 110km/h to 100km/h.
“Safety is our priority and to ensure motorist’s safety, the speed limit on this section of the Carnarvon Highway needs to be decreased,” says Ms Murphy.
The amended speed limits has been backed by the Queensland Police Service.
