Speed limit changes from Macksviile to Bowraville
15 Feb 2013
Roads and Maritime Services (RMS) is encouraging motorists to slow down with speed limit changes to be implemented between Macksville and Bowraville in the next fortnight, weather permitting.
A spokesperson said RMS had 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 60km/h speed limit on Wilson Road at Macksville will be increased to 70km/h from 200 metres west of Coronation Road to 400 metres west of Spaldings Lane.
“The existing 100km/h speed limit on Wilson Road will be reduced to 90km/h from 400 metres west of Spalding Lane at Macksville to 150 metres west of Smiths Lane at Bowraville.
“The existing 80km/h speed limit on Wilson Road at Bowraville will be reduced to 70km/h from 150 metres west of Smith Lane to 150 metres east of Carbin Street.
“The changes will provide a more consistent approach to speed limits along the road and better reflect the road conditions,” the spokesperson said.
Warning signs will be in place to advise motorists of the change.
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.
