A 12-month trial on lower speed limits in Mildura’s CBD could be more permanent than first thought.

The boundary for the trial was set up from Deakin and Pine Avenues and between Seventh and Tenth streets.

Deakin Ave and Seventh Street were not included in the trial.

There are stringent rules on raising maximum speeds on Victorian roads.
