Speed signs could stop a catas­tro­phe

Broome Advertiser - - Opinion - Donalee He­sel­tine, Derby

To Main Roads West­ern Aus­tralia and the Shire of Derby/West Kim­ber­ley.

I’m writ­ing to show sup­port for get­ting a rea­son­able speed limit placed on the roads in the sub­di­vi­sion of Ham­let Grove, com­monly re­ferred to as the Gibb River Blocks.

Ear­lier in the year, an ar­ti­cle in the Broome Ad­ver­tiser stated we would see sig­nage placed on Len­nard Road and Wind­jana Road to show the speed limit to be 60km/h.

Now, gov­ern­ment bu­reau­cracy has once again lost all com­mon sense and the good old “buck-pass­ing” is alive and well.

I’m keep­ing it short and sweet and ask­ing for sig­nage ASAP as it’s not a case of if, but when, a catas­tro­phe is go­ing to hap­pen.

At present, even if we call the po­lice in re­gards to fast traf­fic, there seems to be lit­tle they can do as there is no posted speed limit.

Let’s get to work and ac­tu­ally make a sen­si­ble de­ci­sion be­fore too much longer please.
