NSW Parliamentary Inquiry into Speed limits and road safety in regional NSW

The Koala Koalition, EcoNetwork Port Stephens (KKEPS) welcomes the opportunity to comment on the Inquiry’s work on speed limits and road safety in regional New South Wales. With a variety of major and minor roads intersecting (and fragmenting) koala habitat leading to ongoing koala vehicle strikes, KKEPS urges the Inquiry to consider how a change in driver behaviour and a reduction in speed might benefit remaining koala populations, and consider which road infrastructure options safely enable rather than limit habitat connectivity in already fragmented habitats.
