Motorists in Purnell Road, Corio, should be aware of a new 40km speed zone during school times.

The City of Greater created the new zone, between Princess Road and Goulburn Avenue, in response to a request from Northern Bay College students who were concerned about safety in the area.

New speed limit signs were due to be erected in the area in early September. The 40km limit applies from 8am-9.30am and 2.30pm-4pm.
