You've got your slow food, your slow boats, and now it seems Franklin is to have a slow road.  Bec Enders writes: 

'The Franklin Progress Association (FPA) has had success in changing the speed limit in Franklin through their collaborative approach in working with the Huon Valley Council, Huon Regional Care and Sgt Fogarty of the Huonville Police Station.  We have been advised that the 870 metre extension should take the 50km zone to north of Eldercare.  This would mean that the 60km and 80km zones would also need to be extended further north.  The FPA would like to take the opportunity to thank those that made numerous attempts in the past to achieve this outcome.  No doubt you paved the way for this win!'
