Speed cut for Boyer Rd

THE maximum speed limit on Boyer Rd is to be reduced to 80 kilometres per hour. The Department of Infrastructure, Energy and Resources (DIER) has announced its intention to have a “consistent speed limit” on a 16km section of the road between Granton and New Norfolk. At present, two sections (6.2km between Boyer and Dromedary, and 2.5km near Bridgewater) have a 100km/h limit.

DIER traffic projects manager Peter Hubble says the change follows consultation with the Derwent Valley Council and other stakeholders. “DIER has arranged for the installation and changes to the signage, with temporary ‘Changed Speed Limit Ahead’ advance warning signs to be provided for at least three months,” Mr Hubble said in a letter to the Derwent Valley Council.

The existing 80km sections of Boyer Rd have long been a popular haunt for speed camera vehicles, at Boyer, Dromedary and Bridgewater in particular.
