Speed limit lowered on Gladstone-Benaraby Rd

THE speed limit along a 1km stretch of the Toolooa Bends has been lowered from 90km/h to 70km/h.

The section of Gladstone-Benaraby Rd runs 500 metres either side of the rebuilt Toolooa Boat Ramp.

"We made this decision following a safety review which found visibility in the area did not meet the requirement of the 90km/h speed limit," a Transport and Main Roads spokesperson said.

"The new speed limit will ensure that boat owners and motorists can safely access the boat ramp." 

The new, two-lane boat ramp and floating walkway will assist with boat launching and retrieval, especially at busy times.

The project was funded as part of the Queensland Government's $50 million Marina Infrastructure Fund.
