MAKE IT SAFER: Merrijig residents are calling for a 200 metre stretch on either side of the Mount Buller and Buttercup Road intersection to be made into an 80km/h zone. Pictured at a recent meeting to discuss the matter is Laurie and Louise Jacob, Mansfield Shire acting chief executive officer Peter Reeves, Mansfield Shire mayor Marg Attley, Kym Lynch, Regional Roads Victoria’s Kerry Craig, and Josh Lewis and Des Dunn.

MERRIJIG residents want a 200 metre strip along Mt Buller Road, at the Buttercup Road intersection, reduced to 80 kilometres an hour, calling for Regional Roads Victoria (RRV) to commission the works immediately.

“100kp/h through this intersection is dangerous to road users on both the major and minor road and is therefore inappropriate and unsafe and requires attention to slow the traffic,” Merrijig Residents Action Group (MRAG) spokesperson Kym Lynch said.

“Mount Buller Road is a unique road in the shire, being shared by residents, farming vehicles, a large and varied consort of trucks of all sizes, and a fast growing number of tourists who travel this road in cars, 4WDs, mini vans, coaches, on motorbikes, as cyclists and occasionally on horseback.”
