Local Bellbowrie residents were surprised on Monday the 3rd November to find speed signs for 60kph in place on Moggill Road at Bellbowrie.
Sadly, instead of the Government finally having some commonsense and providing a sensible speed limit in a built up residential area it turned out that frustrated local residents had professionally printed signs pasted over the Government’s official 70kph signs.The “unofficial” signs were professionally printed stickers that would have come at some cost and to the passing motorist were indistinguishable on the official signs.
It is a measure of the frustration of the local community that people are prepared to spend their own money and erect their own signs in order to get some commonsense and safety on a local residential road.
Moggill Road at Bellbowrie contains a busy bus stop, local shopping centre, service station, many driveways, narrow footpaths and a number of intersections and should be entitled to the same built-up residential area speed limit as anywhere else in Brisbane.
