Harvey-Waroona Reporter - - NEWS -

PO­LICE have is­sued a warn­ing to mo­torists to obey speed lim­its af­ter clock­ing a driver trav­el­ling more than 50kmh over the limit in a roadworks zone.

A 46- year- old Perth man is fac­ing a reck­less driv­ing charge af­ter Wa­roona of­fi­cers de­tected his ve­hi­cle al­legedly trav­el­ling at 111kmh in a 60kmh zone on a sec­tion of South Western High­way un­der- go­ing roadworks in Wagerup.

Wa­roona po­lice First Class Const. David Swain warned driv­ers to obey the lim­its sign­posted in roadworks zones.

“For the next few months there are go­ing to be roadworks along that stretch of road in Wa­roona and Yar­loop and as a re­sult there is a change in the speed limit,” Const. Swain said.

“The sign- posted roadworks speed limit will be en­forced to the full ex­tent.

“This is for the safety of other mo­torists and the safety of the peo­ple con­duct­ing the roadworks.”

Const. Swain hoped mo­torists would keep in mind the well­be­ing of the work­ers out do­ing their day job.

“They’d like to go home safely at the end of the day too,” he said.
