Introduction of 40 km/h City Wide Speed Limit
Travel speed is a contributing factor in all crashes and City of Prospect is working towards improving road safety on the local road network. Council supported the introduction of a 40km/h speed limit on the local road network throughout the City of Prospect at their January meeting.
The decision was made following a community consultation held in October and November 2019 that demonstrated 52.9% of respondents supported the proposal.
A 40 km/h speed limit will be introduced to the local road network throughout City of Prospect, excluding:
- Galway Avenue as it is a bus route;
- Prospect Road (retain existing 40km/h and 50km);
- Roads managed by the State Government, including Torrens Road, Regency Road, Churchill Road, Fitzroy Terrace, Main North Road, Nottage Terrace, North East Road, Hampstead Road.
Council have written to the Department Planning, Transport and Infrastructure seeking permission to the introduction and new signage will be installed once approval has been received.
It is expected that the new 40 km/h speed limit will be implemented before the end of the year.
