Change of speed limits on Pacific Highway at Doyalson, Lake Munmorah and Blacksmiths
17 August 2012
Speed limit changes will be implemented on the Pacific Highway at Doyalson, Blacksmiths and Lake Munmorah in the next fortnight, weather permitting.
A Roads and Maritime Services (RMS) spokesperson said RMS has carried out a review as part of the NSW audit of speed zones.
“The review assessed a number of factors including road environment, traffic characteristics and crash data,” the spokesperson said.
“The existing 90km/h speed limit will be reduced to 80km/h from 700 metres north of the Central Coast Highway/Wyee Road at Doyalson to 500 metres south of Tall Timbers Road at Lake Munmorah.
“The existing 90km/h speed limit will be reduced to 80km/h from 315 metres north of Elizabeth Bay Drive/Carters Road to 250 metres north of Kanangra Drive at Lake Munmorah.
“The existing 80km/h speed limit will be reduced to 70km/h from 460 metres north of Gommera/Turea streets at Blacksmiths to Naru Street at Marks Point.
“The changes will provide a more consistent approach to speed limits along the road and better reflect the road conditions.”
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.
