Crash Numbers Plummet Thanks To Speed Drops On M1

Travel Times Also Faster

Crash Numbers Plummet Thanks To Speed Drops On M1

Those lower speed limits on the M1 could become permanent after the number of crashes on the stretch between the Gold Coast and Brisbane halved since the changes were brought in.

According to News Corp, the 10 km/h speed reduction has also seen improved travel times, with figures revealing that when an incident does occur it's cleared within an average of 17 minutes, compared to an hour like it did before March 1.

At the moment the speed is set to go back up to the original limit on April 17 shortly after the Commonwealth Games wrap up.

However a review will be done at that time to see if the changes will stay for good.
