A 30kph temporary speed limit has been put up by Fulton Hogan for the Peacock’s Gallop Project on Main Rd between Moncks Bay & Sumner. Unfortunately the spacing between repeater signs is greater than the 400m maximum allowed by CoPTTM, rendering it unenforceable & probably dangerous, as there is no “reminder to road users of the maximum speed they may travel past, or through, the worksite”. In particular, heading westbound there are gated 30kph TSL signs (starting the TSL area) immediately to the east of the Esplanade. There are then no more 30kph repeater signs on the left hand side of the road (as required by CoPTTM) until halfway along to Shag Rock (despite there being coned off safe zones, shoulder & berms on the left where they could be placed – the attached photo shows an unused sign stand on the left hand side opposite a 30kph TSL sign on the right hand side). According to Google Earth, this is a distance of 590m, which is well over the 400m maximum! Fulton Hogan should both review/correct the layout of their worksite and check with Police that no incorrect speeding tickets have been issued.
