Monash Freeway speed limit cut by 20km/h

The speed limit on a section of Melbourne's Monash Freeway has been reduced to 80km/h due to safety concerns

September 20, 2012

The speed limit on Melbourne’s Monash Freeway on the outbound lane near the Ferntree Gully Road exit has been reduced to 80km/h due to safety concerns.

The stretch of road has become uneven due to a diesel spill last December.

VicRoads will be undertaking temporary repair works over the coming weeks, with speed limit signs in place until they are complete.

Once finished, a review will be undertaken to determine if the 100km/h speed limit should be reinstated until a permanent repair is done in the warmer months.

Meanwhile, the exit ramp on the Western Ring Road near the Sydney Road interchange will be closed until tomorrow morning due to repair works.

Drivers are asked to detour via the Pascoe Vale Road exit ramp.
