A 90km/h limit was introduced last month on the route, known locally as Glastonbury Road, between Bushland Drive and Widgee.
Transport and Main Roads Regional Director for Southern Queensland Region Kym Murphy said a review of the change was conducted at the request of the community.
“We’ve listened and considered the factors and agreed to take the limit back to 80km/h on Eel Creek Bridge and it’s approaches,” she said.
“The limit will remain at 90km/hr from Jeremy Road to Widgee township.
“I urge all motorists to observe the new signs and always drive to the conditions.”
The review and recommendation were made by the Speed Management Committee, which includes representatives from the Queensland Police Service, Gympie Regional Council and TMR.
