ANDERSON: SPEED LIMIT CHANGE ON GOOLHI ROAD AT EMERALD HILL
Member for Tamworth Kevin Anderson is reminding motorists to slow down ahead of a speed limit reduction on Goohli Road through Emerald Hill from Thursday 29 January.
Mr Anderson said the existing 100km/h speed limit was reviewed earlier this year in accordance with the NSW Speed Zoning Guidelines and in consultation with Gunnedah Shire Council.
“I also received contact from many local families with small children who had safety concerns for the speed limit on this stretch of road.
“The review assessed a number of factors including roadside development, traffic flow and crash history along this stretch of road.
“The existing 100km/h speed limit on Goolhi Road from 200m south of McDonald Road to 100m north of Emerald Downs Road will be reduced to 50km/h.
“This change is expected to improve safety for all road users including those accessing driveways along this stretch of road,” Mr Anderson said.
