Summer speed reduction along Golden Point Road

Expedition Pass Reservoir in Chewton

A reduction in the speed limit on Golden Point Road in Chewton will improve safety for pedestrians and motorists during summer.

Tuesday 15 December 2020

The speed limit along a one kilometre stretch of Golden Point Road near Expedition Pass Reservoir in Golden Point will soon reduce from 80km/hr to 40km/hr to improve safety for pedestrians and motorists over the warmer months.

The road has tight bends and is narrow in parts, with blind corners. It becomes very busy during summer due to an increase in the number of vehicles using the road to access Expedition Pass Reservoir.

Mount Alexander Shire Council worked with the Department of Transport to introduce the seasonal speed limit, which will be in place from December until April each year.

It is anticipated that Council will install the new speed limit signs before Christmas.

Council has also received a grant from the Transport Accident Commission (TAC) to identify and assess further parking and traffic safety options for Golden Point Road at Expedition Pass Reservoir.

The reservoir is situated in the Castlemaine Diggings National Heritage Park, which is managed by Parks Victoria.
