Speed limit changes at Inverell

Duty MLC for Northern Tablelands, Sarah Mitchell, is encouraging motorists to slow down with speed limit changes to be implemented on Auburn Vale Road at Inverell in the next fortnight, weather permitting.

Mrs Mitchell said Roads and Maritime Services (RMS) had carried out a review as part of the NSW audit of speed zones.

“The review assessed a number of factors including road environment, traffic characteristics and crash data,” Mrs Mitchell said.

“The existing 100km/h speed limit on Auburn Vale Road will be reduced to 80km/h for four kilometres, from 300 metres south of Harland Street to 300 metres south of Minnamurra Road.

“The changes will provide a more consistent approach to speed limits along the road and better reflect the road conditions,” Mrs Mitchell said.

Warning signs will be in place to advise motorists of the change.

Members of the community can sign up at the Safer Roads NSW website to receive updates about changes to permanent speed limits in their nominated area and have their say on speed limits.
