Important speed limit change on the way for busy Mudgeeraba road

A bit of a change for one of the main roads in Mudgeeraba, with the state government confirming a speed limit reduction is coming.

The section of the Gold Coast-Springbrook Road will soon be reduced by 10km/h in an effort to improve safety throughout the area.

That means the limit will go from 60km/h to 50km/h, about 100m south of the roundabout at Regency Place to 100m south of the Railway Street and Link Way junction.

Queensland Transport Minister Mark Bailey says the locals had been asking for this.

“This area is a hub of activity for the Mudgeeraba community, with supermarkets, retail and restaurants lining the streets,” Mr Bailey said.

“We’ve listened to the concerns of the community and completed a speed limit review of the area.

“The review process considers a range of factors such as road function, roadside environment, road construction standards, prevailing traffic speeds and crash history.”

“This reduction will improve the safety of drivers on the road, people walking and those accessing food and retail outlets.

“I urge all motorists to observe the new speed limit signs and to always drive to conditions.”

Works to change the speed limit signs will get underway in December but there’s no official date for the change just yet.
