Go slow at Wonga

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - NEWS -

DIVI­SION 10 coun­cil­lor Ju­lia Leu wel­comed this week’s an­nounce­ment that the speed limit along the Moss­man-Dain­tree Road near Wonga Beach had been low­ered from 100km/h to 80km/h. “At a com­mu­nity meet­ing at Wonga Beach late last year, res­i­dents raised the is­sue of the speed limit, and I con­tacted Ja­son O’Brien about it,” Ms Leu said. “Af­ter I wit­nessed a hor­rific crash at the in­ter­sec­tion re­cently, I con­tacted him again. The need to re­duce the speed limit in this lo­cal­ity is over­due, par­tic­u­larly with the new set of shops next to the Wonga Beach servo.” Cook MP Ja­son O’Brien said the depart­ment of main roads would con­tinue to mon­i­tor the road, to see if any fur­ther en­gi­neer­ing works are re­quired. The new speed limit, of 80 km/h in both di­rec­tions be­tween Rocky Point and Wonga Beach Road, comes into force to­day.
