Speed limit changes in the Auburn and Parramatta Local Government Areas
9 September 2011
The Roads and Traffic Authority is advising motorists the speed limits on a number of regional and local roads in the Auburn and Parramatta local government areas will be reduced from 60 km/h to 50 km/h from 21 September.
The reduced speed limits are expected to improve road safety and provide consistent 50 km/h speed limits in residential areas.
The decision to lower the speed limits was taken after an extensive review and are expected to provide significant road safety benefits to residents and local road users in the Auburn, Lidcombe and Regents Park area.
The review of these roads was part of the NSW audit of speed zones.
The following roads within the Auburn and Parramatta LGAs have been assessed as local residential roads and will be signposted at 50 km/h.
- Amy Street from Auburn Road to Joseph Street, Regents Park
- Chisholm Road, Manchester Road and The Crescent from Mona Street to Alice Street, Auburn
- Mona Street from Clyde Street, South Granville to Chisholm Road, Auburn
- Vaughan Street from Park Road, Auburn to Olympic Drive, Lidcombe
- Wellington Road from Clyde Street, South Granville to Park Road, Auburn
These speed limits are in line with the 50 km/h default speed limit which applies on local residential roads across NSW.
Electronic message signs will be in place to warn motorists of the speed limit changes from next week before new speed limit signs are installed.
These message signs will remain in place for at least a week after the new speed signs have been installed.
