Speed limit change on Yellow Rock Road at Tullimbar
Parliamentary Secretary for Transport and Roads, John Ajaka MLC is encouraging motorists to slow down with a speed limit change to be implemented on Yellow Rock Road at Tullimbar in the next fortnight, weather permitting.
Roads and Maritime Services (RMS) has carried out a review of the road as part of the NSW audit of speed zones.
“The review assessed a number of factors including road environment, traffic characteristics and crash data,” Mr Ajaka said.
“The existing 100km/h speed limit will be reduced to 50km/h from the intersection with the Illawarra Highway to 450 metres south of Illawarra Highway.
“The change better reflects recent development in the area, and increases safety for residents and road users,” Mr Ajaka said.
Warning signs will be in place to advise motorists of the change 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.
