Mount Samson Road will have its speed limit reduced from 100km/h to 90km/h over a 14km stretch between the North Pine River at Dayboro and Broads Road, Closeburn, starting on June 28.

Mayor Peter Flannery said the change comes after a high number of injury-causing crashes were recorded by police on that stretch of road between 2018 and 2023.

“Mount Samson Road has earned itself the unwanted title of being one of the more dangerous roads in City of Moreton Bay since 2018,” he said.

“We understand that reducing speed limits is sometimes an unpopular option, but we are unapologetic about this change if it saves even one life.

“Decreasing the speed limit by just 10km/h can lead to a significant 30 per cent decrease in the likelihood of serious crashes according to national research.”
