An elected Liberal Government will lower the speed limit on the Murray Valley Hwy through Strathmerton to improve road safety for local kids and pedestrians.
With the Murray Valley Highway used by many heavy vehicles and other traffic, reducing the speed limit from 80kmh to 60kmh is a common sense measure that will save lives.
The Liberals announcement follows a strong community-driven campaign, led by local businesswoman Carolyn Ryan and members of the Strathmerton Community Steering Committee, for a lower speed limit along the town’s main road.
Liberal Candidate for Shepparton Cheryl Hammer said, “The Strathmerton community have been campaigning on this issue for a long time and Wendy Lovell and I have heard them loud and clear.”
I am proud that if elected in November we will reduce the speed limit through Strathmerton to improve safety for the Strathmerton community.
Lowering the speed limit will improve road safety in Strathmerton, making it safer for local children during school drop off and pick up times, pedestrians crossing the Murray Valley Hwy and traffic entering and exiting local businesses.
By contrast, the Andrews Labor Government still refuses to listen to the community’s concerns failing to take action since it was elected in 2014.
