Gibbons councillors are not happy with the local speed limit.
Wednesday morning (Feb.14), they discussed reducing the 80 km/h section on Highway 28A, due to increased danger to drivers.
"It really should be 60 km/h, we have a great deal of traffic that is trying to get both in and out of our town doing a left hand turn," said Gibbons CAO, Farrell O'Malley. "The biggest thing is safety. With the speed of vehicles and the design of the heavy trucks, during winter it's tough for stopping."
The 100 km/h stretch would remain the same.
Other dangers brought up by council include the safety of town and construction workers near the road.
The only highway intersection near Gibbons with traffic lights is Highway 28A and Range Road 643.
"Now that we have stop lights, turning lights and everything else there, it's still 80 and I feel it should be reduced to 60 (km/h)," said councillor Darren McCann.
The town must now send a letter to the provincial government to have the speed reduced.
