Government speed limit review
NSW Roads Minister Duncan Gay this month announced the top 100 roads to have their speed limits reviewed had been identified as part of the NSW Government's audit of speed zones.
"As part of our audit of speed zones we committed to reviewing the top 100 roads, nominated by the community, by the end of March 2012," Mr Gay said.
"I'm pleased to announce the top 100 corridors for review and provide a full list of these to the public, available to view on the RMS website.
"We had more than 27,000 people visit our Safer Roads NSW website and more than 2600 submissions from across the state. The information provided by the community has helped the NSW Centre for Road Safety prioritise the corridors to be reviewed.
"RMS will start reviews on these corridors in coming weeks and will finish the reviews in March 2012."
The roads to be reviewed are a mix of rural and metropolitan locations and include:
Cleveland St (Sydney)
Anzac Bridge (Sydney)
Princes Highway (several locations)
Lismore-Dunoon Rd (Lismore)
Bells Line Rd
Nelson Bay Rd (FernBay)
Pacific Highway (several locations)
Narellan Rd (Sydney)
M7 Motorway (Sydney)
Mr Gay encouraged people to continue visiting the Safer Roads NSW website to provide comments and feedback.
"We want to hear what people have to say about speed limits or speed limit signs so we can continue looking into the areas where people have concerns," he said. "Feedback received will be used to determine roads for future speed limit reviews, so keep visiting the website and sending in your comments."
Mr Gay said the Safer Roads NSW website now also offered an email update service which people could use to receive updates about upcoming permanent speed limit changes in their nominated area.
