Speed limit changes Strathfield and Blakehurst
5 October 2011
The Roads and Traffic Authority is advising motorists of speed limit changes between Strathfield and Blakehurst along Centenary Drive and King Georges Road from the 14 October.
“The Roads and Traffic Authority has carried out a comprehensive review of the speed limits along Homebush Bay Drive, Centenary Drive, Roberts Road and King Georges Road after requests made from the community, Canterbury Council and NSW Police” a Roads and Traffic Authority spokesperson said.
“The frequent speed limit changes along this 19 kilometre route meant motorists had to continually monitor and change their speed.
“The changes to these speed limits will provide more consistent speed limits along this important stretch of road.
- The 80 km/h speed limit on Centenary Drive will be reduced to 70 km/h between 540 metres south of Weeroona Road, Strathfield and 175 metres north of Norfolk Road, Greenacre.
- The speed limit on King Georges Road will be reduced from 70 km/h to 60 km/h between 460 metres north of Punchbowl Road, Greenacre and 280 metres south of Punchbowl Road, Wiley Park.
- The speed limit on King Georges Road will be reduced from 70 km/h to 60 km/h between 190 metres north of Canterbury Road, Wiley Park and 200 metres north of Ponyara Road, Beverly Hills. Note that this new 60 km/h zone will be enforced by an existing Safety Camera at the intersection of King Georges Road and Moorefields Road.
- The speed limit on King Georges Road will be reduced from 70 km/h to 60 km/h between 100 metres south of Warwick Street, South Hurstville and 150 metres south of Connells Point Road, Blakehurst.
“These changes to the speed limit along King Georges Road will provide a consistent 8.3 kilometre length of 60km/h between Greenacre and Blakehurst.
“These sections of road were part of the NSW audit of speed zones.”
Electronic message signs will be in place to warn motorists of the speed limit changes before the 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.
