No lower limit for Lachlan Rd
The same issue had arisen at the previous month's council meeting, when mayor Martyn Evans said he would support a 45km/h dusk to dawn limit on Lachlan Rd.
Mr Mackey said council works manager Stewart Taylor had investigated the matter and had been advised that the Department of Infrastructure, Energy and Resources would not approve the request. Mr Taylor said the "dusk to dawn" signage related to the amount of roadkill and traffic accidents in an area and there was no record of any accidents due to wildlife.
The council and DIER were instead looking at standard wildlife roadsigns for the area.
