LNP offers speed limit reviews
SPEED limits on roads across the state would be reviewed with some to become higher and some slower, under an election pledge to be unveiled by the LNP today.
Opposition Leader Tim Nicholls will promise to call the community to put forward their views on which state road speed limits they would like to see changed, with the LNP to select 100 from the list.
That shortlist will then be reviewed by police and road safety engineers before the changes are implemented.
It is the latest election commitment to be unveiled by Mr Nicholls ahead of the looming state election and follows a similar move by the former Newman government.
It changed the speed limits on 100 roads statewide after a similar campaign whittled 3000 nominated roads down to 100.
“It’s been a long time since speed limits on many of our roads have been thoroughly reviewed,” Mr Nicholls said.
“Congestion costs motorists time and our economy money. Having ‘ fit- for- purpose’ speed limits will help alleviate congestion and get Queenslanders home sooner.”
The policy has been dubbed “sensible speed limits”.
