Road Speed Limits (Jul 2023)

How Road Speed Limits are set

As our roads continue to improve after the 2022 natural disaster, it is important that we all adhere to posted speed limits as they are designed to protect you and others on the road.

Speed limits are set to ensure drivers can safely respond to potential risks on the road. They are set to manage the risk of crashes and minimise the force that road users are exposed to.

Speed limits and reviews are managed by Transport for NSW (TfNSW), not Council, and are determined by several crucial factors. These include:

  • Crash risk
  • Road characteristics (alignment, lane width and access points)
  • Road function
  • Roadside development
  • Traffic characteristics
  • At-risk locations
  • The presence of vulnerable road users
