Wow it’s a well built road and all, but I can’t imagine doing 215km/h on it though. What happens if a Roo jumps out in front of a car at that speed? I would hate to see the result.

Don’t think it would make much difference hitting a roo @215 compared to 110. Carnage either way. What may change is how many other people get taken out at the same time.

A couple of weekends ago on the Monaro Highway, between Johnson Drive and Michelago I counted 106 dead roos, 12 dead wombats and a dead fox … in about 26Km.
I don’t know what the road kill situation is around Mittagong but this guy wouldn’t have reached Royalla.

Yep. But at speed, most of the carnage takes place when people swerve to avoid something unexpected (like a roo), rather than the roo itself.

The road can handle the speed, as can many cars. It’s the drivers who are out of their depth.
