In light of two fatal accidents in just over two months on this road,  I would like to request the urgent lowering of the speed limit on Melba Highway between Coldstream and Yarra Glen, and in particular between McIntyre Lane and Yarra Glen.

The current speed limit is 100 km/hour which seems obviously too high to me on such a narrow stretch of road that has two sharp bends on it and is also commonly used by trucks.This road has become notorious for accidents and, with these recent fatal accidents, I believe the speed limit needs to be lowered to 70 km/hour or 80 km/hour at the least to avoid more accidents, in particular fatal ones, and unnecessary loss of life.
                                                                                    As well as this, 40 km/hour signs need to be displayed at the bend at McIntyre Lane and the bend just before you come to the last stretch of road leading to Yarra Glen just before the bridge if coming from Yetring side.

My son and his family, including my small grand children, live in Yarra Glen and I’m very concerned, please assist in supporting lowering the speed limit.
