The Ministry of Transport in the Australian state of Queensland has announced cuts to speed limits by 10km/h on a division of Mount Lindesay Highway (route 13).

Reduction in speed limits from 100km/h to 90km/h is mainly to reduce the number and severity of crashes on a road which carries about 17,000 vehicles each day.

The Transportation Department has installed new speed signs and warning signs before the reduced speed section to remind the motorists that they are entering a high-crash zone.

Sections of Queensland’s Bruce Highway and the Warrego Highway have already seen reduction in speed limits.
