Fifty km/h zone extended in North Limoges

LimogesThe 50 km/h zone in the north-east corner of Limoges has been extended by a few hundred metres. A new sign has been installed further east on Indian Creek Road, coupled with a warning sign more than 100 metres earlier for traffic traveling west emerging from Larose Forest.

The signs have been clearly positioned as a reminder that drivers are obligated to slow down through the residential section on Indian Creek Road. The slower zone used to begin where the road switched from gravel to pavement. The new sign starts earlier.

Speed is very often an issue in this small residential section in North Limoges, which is less than a kilometre in length. Drivers often fail to slow down in either direction, maintaining the faster speed from the 80 km/h zones on either side. These faster speeds pose a danger to the local community, including children.

In the small northern community in the Village of Limoges (North Limoges or Cambridge Forest Estates), the residential section in and around Beaver Lane also features a 50 km/h zone.
