Ask RiotACT: Speed limit change on parkway?

I noticed on the Tuggeranong Parkway southbound, near the intersection of Sulwood Drive, there was a sign saying there was an upcoming speed limit change. Any ideas as to what it is about?

What’s Your opinion?

Rumours are that the 80km/h sign is coming further up the hill to slow traffic earlier before the lights at Kambah. I don’t know if there is any substance to it or simply speculation, considering the point to point speed camera from Athllon Drive is being relocated, possibly to the Parkway.
If it is true, I can not see a good reason to do so. If traffic backs up and speed is a concern, the sign needs to be placed anywhere between the Glenlock Interchange and Hindmarsh Drive, as traffic can be almost completely stopped at any point on the Parkway for any number of reasons. Is this is just another nanny state command to protect us from ourselves instead of teaching us to behave like responsible human beings, or a recipe for an increased budget surplus thanks to the statistical probability of drivers going a few kays over the limit down that hill? Time will tell.

They’re going to make it 110 and tell people to drive in the right hand lane to match what traffic already does

Looks like the well sourced rumour about the point to point speed camera from Athllon Drive being relocated to the Parkway might be true. What a disaster it will be mixing Tuggeranong traffic all doing 95km with traffic from Woden, Weston Creek and Molonglo doing 95-110km and those speeding cars will not in the point to point speed camera zone. Crazy Stuff.

Seems like it’s par for the course with the Labor/Greens Alliance Against Common Sense returned to government.
