Speed limit changes in Caroona
24 October 2012
Speed limit changes will be implemented on Caroona local roads in the next fortnight, weather permitting.
Roads and Maritime Services (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,” an RMS spokesperson said.
“The existing 100km/h speed limit on Wallhallow Road will be reduced to 80km/h for 800 metres from Coonabarabran Road.
“The existing 100km/h speed limit on Caroona Mission Road will be reduced to 80km/h.
“The changes will 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.
