SPEED LIMIT CHANGES ON A NUMBER OF INVERELL ROADS

 

MEMBER for Northern Tablelands Adam Marshall has advised motorists that speed limit changes have been made on a large number of roads in and around Inverell.

 

Mr Marshall said that a review of the existing 100km/h speed limits on Fernhill Road, Fullers Lane, Loxton Road, Mackie Lane, Roscrae Lane, Bundanoon Lane, Bullamungee Close, Ditzells Drive, Dog Trap Lane, Dunmallarad Lane, Pearson Road and Vintage Close had been conducted in accordance with the NSW Speed Zoning Guidelines and in consultation with Inverell Shire Council.

 

“The review assessed a number of factors including roadside development, traffic characteristics and crash data,” he said.

 

The existing 100km/h speed limit on Fernhill Road will be reduced to 80km/h from the Gwydir Highway to 925 metres west of Yetman Road.

 

The existing 100km/h speed limit on Fullers Lane will be reduced to 60km/h from Fernhill Road to Yetman Road.

 

The existing speed limit of 100km/h on Loxton Road, Mackie Lane, Roscrae Lane, Bundanoon Lane, Bullamungee Close, Ditzells Drive, Dog Trap Lane, Dunmallard Lane, Pearson Road and Vintage Close will be reduced to 60km/h.

 

Additionally, Mr Marshall said the 70km/h speed limit on Runnymeade Road and surrounding access roads was reviewed earlier this year.

 

“The existing speed limit of 70km/h on Runnymeade Drive will be retained, as recommended by the review,” he said.

 

“A 50km/h speed limit will be installed on Bimbadeen Drive, Angorra Close, Caloola Drive, Wolbah Close and Onus Avenue.

 

“All the speed changes in the Inverell roads reflect the level of roadside development and aim to improve safety for all road users,” Mr Marshall said.

 

“Motorists are reminded that now the speed signs have been installed, the speed limits are enforceable.”
