Motorists advised of new speed limits to improve road safety in Greater Hume
11 November 2016
Member for Albury, Greg Aplin is advising motorists of changed speed limits through the Greater Hume area to improve safety for road users.
A review of speed limits in the area was carried out in response to a request from the Greater Hume Shire Council and members of the community.
“The review assessed a number of factors, including pedestrian activity, road environment, traffic characteristics and crash data,” Mr Aplin said.
“New 80 km/h and 50 km/h speed zones will be in place later this month to provide consistency within the local area.
“On Jelbart Road near Jindera, the 100 km/h zone between Urana Road and Singe Road will be reduced to 80 km/h.”
A number of changes will take place on roads at Gerogery West:
- The 80 km/h zone on Gerogery Road will be extended from 250 metres south of Glenellen Road to 250 metres north of Glenellen Road.
- Glenellen Road from Gerogery West Road to 200 metres west of Greenwood Road will be reduced from 100 km/h to 80 km/h
- Greenwood Road will be reduced to 80 km/h
- Huon Street will be reduced to 50 km/h
- Thomas Street will be reduced to 50 km/h
- Charles Street will be reduced to a 50 km/h zone from Gerogery Road to Sarah Street
- Sarah Street will be reduced to 50 km/h
- Klara Street will be reduced to 50 km/h.
“Greater Hume Shire Council will install the new speed zones from Monday 21 November with electronic message signs to inform motorists of the change,” said Mr Aplin.
“The work is not expected to impact road users but motorists are asked to follow the direction of traffic control and signs.”
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 to have a say on speed limits.
Roads and Maritime thanks the community for its patience while the speed zone signage is installed.
