Maffra speed limit survey

The Maffra Business and Tourism Association has raised concerns about the road crossing on Johnson St.

The Maffra Business and Tourism Association has raised concerns about the road crossing on Johnson St.

VICROADS wants to know what the broader Maffra community thinks about the current 60 kilometre per hour speed limit along Johnson St.

A community survey is now online and focuses on the 400 metre section of Johnson St which stretches through its main shopping blocks, between Foster and Thomson Sts.

There have been calls from some community members to have the speed reduced to 50kmh along this section.

VicRoads planning manager Pas Monacella said a change to the Johnson St speed limit would likely affect its two adjacent service roads, which are already 50kmh.

"Service roads by design are a lower speed than the roads they are located along, providing safer pedestrian and access environments," Mr Monacella said.

The survey can be accessed at www.surveygizmo.com/s3/3437773/Johnson-Street-Maffra-survey and will be available to Friday, May 19.

Community members whose residential post codes do not qualify for the survey are strongly encouraged to provide feedback via TowardsZeroGippsland@roads.vic.gov.au.
