So, I've just been handed a government report and asked to file comment on it. It's about traffic management in Anglesea, and will have a direct bearing on us (Anglesea CFA). I have also noticed that they are collecting evidence and filling a report on reducing the speed limit on the GOR to 50km/h. Yes, the entire Great Ocean Road.... to 50km/h. I may be young, but I still remember when this road was 100km/h, and the towns were 60km/h. The full information they are collecting/basing the argument on is not cited in the report I have, but from what I've read, the main reasons are: - 1 fatality involving a motorcycle hitting a traffic island in Anglesea (speed limit is 60km/h in winter, 50km/h in summer. Incident occurred in October 2004 which would be 60km/h at that time of year. - Pedestrians complaining that they can't cross the road in summer due to the traffic volume (when the speed limit is 50km/h anyway) - Cars unable to pull out of side streets due to traffic volume in summer (when the speed limit is 50km/h) Like I said, this report only mentions that they are collecting information on whether or not to lower the speed limit on the GOR. It doesn't actually state what information is being used, or how it is being used (usually the worst bit). Am I the only person who feels like moving to Germany right now? Nice cheap benz/BMW and an autobahn. Not to mention Nurbergring Nordschleife on the weekends... Better brush up on my German!!! Auf Wiedersehen!
