Motorists are asked to take care while driving along McSwains Rd.

The temporary speed limits are in place along McSwains Rd, while contractor Northern Constructions complete road and drainage works.

A Campaspe Shire spokesperson said the signs are in place to reduce the risk to all motorists due to heavy vehicles entering or exiting the private property being developed.

The spokesperson said Northern Constructions have been delayed several times because of rain in recent weeks.

Northern Constructions have letterbox-dropped residents on the southern side of McSwains Rd, alerting them to the fact road works will start.

The spokesperson said the signage in place for the private works legally lowered the speed limit to 40km/h through the location.

A resident contacted the Riv, calling for drivers to take care.

The resident said the signs had been in place for months and drivers were being caught speeding because they had become complacent with the signs as no road works are being carried out.
