The state government has funded the installation of ‘slow down’ signs near the entrance to Clunes on the Bangalow–Lismore Road after an election promise to turn off the town’s speed camera was followed by an increase in cars detected exceeding the speed limit.

Lismore MP Thomas George said the signs were being installed ‘as part of a $93,000 state funded project to improve road safety by advising motorists of their speed leading into Clunes, Urunga and Macksville’.

‘The signs at Clunes aim to provide early warning to motorists using the Lismore to Bangalow Road to reduce their speed, improving safety in the town,’ Mr George said.

‘Research has shown road safety is significantly improved when road users are provided with early warnings encouraging them to slow down and drive cautiously.’

The Clunes signs were installed on Wednesday.
