An increase in motorists speeding along Kingfisher Avenue in Hawks Nest has prompted a request for police to enforce the 50km/h speed limit.
Figures recently released by MidCoast Council show a top speed of 150.9km/h was recorded 50 metres east of the Singing Bridge during a two-week period in November.
The figures also indicate that the average speed of motorists during the same period was more than 7 km/h above the speed limit.
When compared to data collected in June 2016, the recent figures indicate an increase in the speed travelled by motorists on the road.
Manager Design and Investigation Kumar Kuruppu tabled the figures at the December meeting of the Local Traffic Committee.
The committee recommended that police be requested to undertake enforcement of Kingfisher Avenue in an effort to reduce the speed of road users.
