As noted a couple weeks ago, the roadworks on the Hume Highway which have slowed my trips down considerably, have now been completed…well, almost. For some unknown reason, the westbound run towards Gundagai still has a decent stretch of “roadwork” slowing the road to 80km/h…I say roadworks in quotations, because I’m not convinced that closing the overtaking lane for no apparent reason and slowing the remaining lane down by 30km/h counts as roadworks.
Anyhoo, my trip was faster, taking only four hours and thirty-six minutes this time around.
I left home at 9:02am and stopped in Gundagai at 10:38am. I was back on the road at 11:00am and arrived at the hotel in Deniliquin at 2:00pm (I was surprised when both times were right on the dot). It’s a 495KM run, which makes the average speed 107.61 km/h.
As usual, Regional News headlines will be posted here on weekday mornings at around 9am over the course of the next two weeks.
