BRISBANE TO TRIAL 30KM/H IN CBD

Great to see the City of Brisbane Mayor announcing a review into the city’s road safety with a plan to tackle an increasing number of deaths and accidents in its CBD — by slashing the speed limit down to 30km/h.

Lord Mayor Graham Quirk has announced a review into the city’s road safety, calling for a year-long trial of the slow speed limits.

The review came after 16 cyclists and pedestrians were killed on Queensland roads in the past six months.

In May, Brisbane mum Anne-Marie Stent died after she was hit by a city bus while crossing Ann St.

The mayor’s proposal would also cut speed limits on Ann St and Turbot St down to 50km/h.
