Speed limit change for West Guyra

Member for Northern Tablelands Adam Marshall is encouraging motorists to slow down when travelling along Baldersleigh Road near West Guyra with speed limit changes to be implemented in the next fortnight to increase safety for motorists.

“A recent speed zone review found by reducing the speed limit to 80km/h from 100km/h it would improve safety for all road users,” Mr Marshall said.

“The review was carried out in accordance with the NSW Speed Zoning Guidelines and in consultation with Guyra Shire Council.

“The review assessed a number of factors including roadside development, traffic flow and crash statistics.

“The speed limit of 100km/h on Baldersleigh Road will be reduced to 80km/h from 920 metres west of Lakeview Road.

“A 60km/h speed limit will be installed on Lakeview Road, Dixon Road, Chaffeys Lane and Robinsons Lane.

“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 by Guyra Shire Council.”
