New Traffic Calming Devices Aid Road Works Safety

Horsham Rural City Council has introduced new traffic calming devices (speed humps) to be used at major road construction sites.

The speed humps are expected to significantly enhance the safety measures currently in place which include traffic control lights and speed restriction signage.

The transportable devices will be strategically placed to effectively manage speed limits and ensure safer roads for both motorists and road workers.

Chief Executive Officer Sunil Bhalla said the devices would play a pivotal role in preventing accidents and improving overall traffic flow.

He also reminded residents and visitors that adherence to restricted speed limits and traffic control signals is mandatory under Victorian traffic law.

“However, the primary reason for obeying these rules is not just legal compliance, but more importantly, to ensure the safety of all road users, including road workers,” Mr Bhalla said.

“We appreciate the public’s cooperation out on the road and we’re confident that these new devices will contribute significantly to creating safer roads for everyone in the municipality,” he said.
