Change of speed limit on The Bucketts Way at Krambach
31 August 2012
A speed limit change will be implemented on The Bucketts Way at Krambach in the next fortnight, weather permitting.
A Roads and Maritimie Services (RMS) spokesperson said a review had been carried out 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 70km/h speed limit on The Bucketts Way, 100 metres east of Mill Street to 150 metres north of Tara Street at Taree will be reduced to 60km/h.
“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.
