A NUMBER of serious accidents along the Shepparton Alternative Route has forced VicRoads to extend the current 80km/h speed zone from Grahamvale Primary School by 450 metres north of Ford Road, reducing the 100km/h speed zone in the area.
A VicRoads spokesperson said, “Reducing the speed limit in this area will slow drivers down on their approach to the Shepparton Alternative Route Grahamvale Road/Ford Road intersection, and reduce the risk of further crashes in this area.
“It is expected the new signs will be installed during the week.
“VicRoads reminds motorists to keep a look out for the new speed signs and obey the speed limit changes as they are in place for your own safety and the safety of other road users.”
