Speed limit changes at Gulmarrad and Nammoona rail crossing

Motorists are encouraged to slow down with speed limit changes to be implemented in the next fortnight, weather permitting, on Brooms Head Road at Gulmarrad and on the Summerland Way at Nammoona Rail Crossing, north of Casino.
Mr Gulaptis said Roads and Maritime Services (RMS) has carried out a review as part of the NSW audit of speed zones.

“The review assessed a number of factors along Brooms Head Road in Gulmarrad and on the Summerland Way at Nammoona Rail Crossing including pedestrian activity, road environment, traffic characteristics and crash data,” Mr Gulaptis said.

“The existing speed limit on Brooms Head Road at Gulmarrad will be reduced to 80km/h from 50 metres southeast of Goanna Close to 100 metres southeast of Platers Road.

“The existing speed limit on Summerland Way at Nammoona Rail Crossing will be reduced to 80km/h from 60 metres north of Rosewood Avenue at Casino to Bundock Road at Nammoona.

“These changes reflect the roadside environments of the two roads such as vegetation and
developments and will improve road safety at the Railway Level Crossing and in the Gulmarrad area,” Mr Gulaptis said.

Warning signs will be in place to advise motorists of the changes and will remain for at least a week after the new speed limit signs have been installed.

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.
