Council has received three requests to reinstate 40 km/h speed signs at the settlement of Little Roaring Beach and one request to review the default speed limit on Esperance Coast Road which is 100 km/h.
Investigations with Department of State Growth indicate 40 km/h speed signs were not installed at Little Roaring Beach. There is however 25 km/h and 35 km/h advisory signs installed at the settlement extents.
The length of proposed reduction area at Esperance Coast Road is approximately 1km. The entire length of Esperance Coast Road (19.011 km) is regulated by the default speed limit for sealed roads which is 100 km/h.
Council will seek approval at the April Ordinary Council meeting to write to the Department of State Growth to seek a speed limit reduction from 100 km/h to 40 km/h on the section of Esperance Coast Road through Little Roaring Beach.
