Hinterland Way speed limit

I wonder if the motorists that use the old Pacific Highway (now renamed Hinterland Way) on a day to day basis are aware that there is a group of people intending to lobby the council to have the speed limit reduced from 80 kph to 50- 60kph once the RMS hands it over to the council.

For a road that was once 100kph prior to the construction of the new highway to then be cut to 50- 60kph after 95 per cent of the traffic is gone is a bit like throwing the baby out with the bath water.

I don’t see a problem with one or two 60 kph sections say at the Macadamia Castle & or the Newrybar service road/ Broken Head Rd (school). The only achievement that I can see in reducing the speed limit on the Hinterland Way would be one of revenue in the way of speeding fines.
