Change of speed limit on Henry Parry Drive at Gosford
17 August 2012
A speed limit change will be implemented on Henry Parry Drive at Gosford 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 40km/h speed limit will be increased to 50km/h from 630 metres north of the Central Coast Highway to 1.36 kilometres north of the highway at Gosford.
“The change 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 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.
