TO: The Honourable the Speaker and Members of the Legislative Assembly of Queensland

The petition of residents of the State of Queensland draws to the attention of the House concerns raised by the community that the current speed limit of 100km/h on the D'Aguilar Highway - from 500m west of the Kilcoy-Somerset Road intersection, to the current 80km/hr zone heading east into Kilcoy - is too fast and has resulted in many near misses and one fatality at the Kilcoy-Somerset Road intersection.

Your petitioners therefore request the House to decrease the speed limit on this section of Highway, and begin the 80km/h limit on the D'Aguilar Highway (near Kilcoy) at approximately 500 metres west of the Kilcoy-Somerset Road intersection (with the D'Aguilar Highway) and adjoin the 80km/hr section currently in place on entry to the Kilcoy township.
