Pedestrian and cyclist safety improved in Redfern

21 August 2018

NSW Government Member of Parliament Shayne Mallard MP has announced the expansion of the 40km/h speed limit in Redfern as of Monday 27 August 2018.

“Redfern is continuing to boom with pedestrians, cyclists and cars mixing on our streets.”

“The reduction of the speed limit to 40km on key streets like George, Renwick and Pitt Streets will improve pedestrian and cyclist safety whilst improving the livability and amenity of the area” Mr Mallard said.

Motorists are advised of changed traffic conditions in Redfern this month to reduce the speed limit on Pitt Street, George Street, Renwick Street, Stirling Street, James Street and Burnett Street.

A new speed limit of 40 km/h will take effect from Monday 27 August, to improve safety for motorists and pedestrians and ensure a consistent speed within the local road network.

Work installing new speed zone signage and road marking will start on 27 August and is expected to be completed by 7 September 2018, weather permitting.

Work will be carried out between 8pm and 5am Sunday to Thursday. Traffic control and a reduced speed limit will be in place for the safety of workers and motorists.

Motorists are reminded the speed limit is legally enforceable.

Please look out for the new 40km/h in Redfern from August and drive at the new speed limit of 40km/h to improve motorist and pedestrian safety.
