Mungindi to See New 40km/H Speed Limit in The Main Street

Residents will begin to see the change of activity around the Mungindi Main Street (St George Street) from 17 - 29 April 2019, as Council installs new signs in preparation to launch the 40 kilometres per hour (km/h) High Pedestrian Activity Area. 

Moree Plains Shire Council’s Project & Development Manager Ms Lila Fisher explained speed limits will be lowered from 50km/h to 40 km/h on St George Street, between Narrabri and Wirrah Streets, Mungindi.

“The new signs and pavement markings indicating the new 40km/h zone will be installed to make Mungindi a more pedestrian friendly area, improving safety for children, seniors and cyclists,” said Ms Fisher.

The cost for Mungindi High Pedestrian Activity Area has been fully funded & supported by the Roads and Maritime services(RMS) to assist with managing speed and pedestrian safety which has been an ongoing concern raised by the local residents. Research shows that a pedestrian hit by a car travelling at 40km/h has twice the chance of surviving the collision than if the car was travelling 50km/h.

Works for the implementation of the Mungindi High Pedestrian Activity Area are expected to be completed by 29 April 2019 when the new 40km/h signage will be unveiled.

A Variable Message Sign will be placed on the major approaches to the Mungindi CBD to notify motorists of the changed road conditions.

The new 40kmh zone encompasses area bordered by St George Street 370m from Narrabri Street towards Wirrah Streetpng
