Speed limit review Euroa-Strathbogie Road

Tuesday, 28 August, 2018

Strathbogie Shire Council invites the community to participate in a review of the speed limit on the Euroa-Strathbogie Road on the outskirts of Euroa.

Strathbogie Shire Mayor Amanda McClaren said a number of factors have contributed to a review of the speed limit between Armstrong Street and the Water Treatment Plant.

“In light of an increasing number of heavy vehicles accessing the recently upgraded entrance to the Euroa Water Treatment Plant, Council's Community Assets Department has raised safety concerns about the section of this road between Armstrong Street and the Water Treatment Plant,” Cr McClaren explained.

“There are also concerns identified in relation to providing safer access for pedestrians crossing Euroa-Strathbogie Road between the Apex Walking Track and the Balmattum Hill Walking Track, and also the regular movements of kangaroos crossing the Euroa-Strathbogie Road.”

In response to these concerns, Council would like to hear from the community about their thoughts regarding a reduction in speed limit along this section of road.

“We would really like to hear local views on this issue,” Mayor McClaren said.
