“A review has considered the road design and road safety characteristics of the GDE as well as the outcome of noise surveys at various sites along the GDE corridor. This report recommended that the speed limit be revised to 90 km/h,” the Chief Minister said.
“The 90km/h speed limit will come into effect from 10th March 2012. It will cover the section between the Barton Highway interchange through to the Glenloch interchange. To ensure consistency it will also include the connection ramps from Tuggeranong Parkway to William Hovell Drive; the City bound connection ramps and the William Hovell City bound ramp.
