Dual speed confusion on Pacific Hwy coming to an end

THE confusion caused by having dual speed limits on the Pacific Hwy north of Urunga will be no more.

The dual 110km/h and 80km/h if it's wet between Urunga and Mailmans Track is being removed next week.

The Member for Coffs Harbour, Andrew Fraser, made the announcement today adding the stretch of road will be 110km/h at all times.

"Now that recent repairs to the highway are completed the temporary wet weather speed limit of 80km/h can be removed," Mr Fraser said.

"Repair work included road drainage investigations and improvements. The dual speed limit accommodated for wet and dry weather conditions and improved safety on the highway until the repair work was completed."

The signs near Mylestom and Repton which displayed the speed limit of 80km/h in the wet and 110km/h in the dry will be removed.

The speed limit on this stretch of the Pacific Highway now adds to the consistent 110km/h speed zone for a 14.5 kilometre stretch of the highway from Urunga to just south of Coffs Harbour.
