THE Fraser Coast Regional Council has thrown its weight behind efforts to make three Urangan streets safer by reducing the speed limit.
The Fraser Coast Regional Council will lobby to have the speed limit in sections of three Urangan streets reduced to 50km/h.
The move follows a review of speed limits in response to a petition to lower the speed limit in Pulgul Street between Boat Harbour Drive and Kent Street.
Council’s review indicated that if the speed limit was lowered in Pulgul Street, it should also be lowered in sections of King Street and Kent Street.

The results of the review will now be presented to the Speed Management Committee, which includes representatives from the Queensland Police Service and the Department of Transport and Main Roads, for consideration.
The proposed speed limits are:
- Pulgul Street, Boat Harbour Drive to Kent Street, 50km/hr;
- King Street, Kent Street to Elizabeth Street, 50km/hr, and;
- Kent Street, Short Street to Pulgul Street, 50km/hr.
