Gympie Police said they issued more than 10 traffic infringement notices to drivers in the area, mostly between 7am and 3pm on Monday.

Multiple drivers were reportedly caught travelling more than 13km/h over the limit, through the road work zone.

Most of those were travelling at nearly more 20km/h over of the reduced speed zone, and one driver was allegedly pinged at travelling 100km/h in the 40km/h zone.

Police said the simple message to drivers was to remember to observe the speed limit in all speed zones including roadworks for the safety of everyone on the road.
