Road safety on the King’s Highway

By johnboy 21 December 2006 44

The Canberra Times has a story on some badly needed safety measures for the King’s Highway which runs from Canberra to the coast.

Are they going to put a proper camber on the bends? Straighten roads? Bridge and tunnel?

No, they’re going to put up some signs with which to distract those drivers who can be bothered to read them.

I’m amazed there isn’t more forest litter on the highway considering a significant part of it is bordered by trees. Anybody know if the Road Authorities regularly do a “sweep”? My greatest fear using the highway is rounding a corner and running up the back of a slow moving lorry, so I keep one foot poised above the brake pedal in such situations.

A very Merry Christmas to all those who have travelled this road safely and sensibly this weekend – and here’s hoping the other idiots come to grief, without taking the good drivers with them.

Nothing wrong with that road, it’s fine. So sad that nowadays, people demand dual-carriageway roads rather than simply driving better.

ACTION can’t even negotiate the Canberra area with regular transport. How are they going to do that for the South Coast? Plus it’s out of their area.

Speak to Greyhound or Murrays.

Oh btw, we got to the coast fine. P platers overtaking on bends, speeding like they know the road, plus their lovely role models in hotted up Holdens and Fords also speeding, overtaking on bends and generally being wankers.

I’m sorry my 95-100kms (where signed) was not “fast” enough for you.
