We need to take all reasonable steps available to protect our community, our Elected Members, our staff and volunteers (and their families) against the spread of this infection while ensuring we deliver services as close to ‘business as usual’ as possible.

Dismiss alert

We're committed to safer streets

City of Prospect is seeking to reduce suburban street speeds to 40km/h.

At the Council meeting 28 January 2020 it was resolved that Council in principle supports a 40km/h speed limit on the local road network throughout the City.

There are two locations where the 40km/h speed limit borders local roads within the City of Port Adelaide Enfield in Sefton Park/Broadview and Prospect adjacent to Kilburn.

The City of Port Adelaide Enfield supports the 40km/h implementation in the area south of Regency Road (in Sefton Park/Broadview) and is currently undertaking data collection and then community consultation to consider expanding the speed limit into its local streets.

The proposal will be considered at the October 2020 meeting of Port Adelaide Enfield. If endorsed by Port Adelaide Enfield Council this area can be included within the wider 40km/h scheme.

The City of Port Adelaide Enfield does not support the proposal by the City of Prospect to create a 40km/h speed limit in the local streets within the area north of Regency Road (Prospect, adjacent to Kilburn).

A majority of City of Prospect residents in this area however (60% ‘YES’ vote) have indicated support for the implementation of the 40km/h scheme. With appropriate signage to create a clear boundary to the start/end of the 40km/h zone within this area there is no reason they should not be entitled to enjoy the benefits of safer streets as residents of the City of Prospect.
