40km Area Speed Limits

Council is committed to delivering on the State Governments commitment to reduce crashes by 30%, and we want our community to stop accepting crashes on our local roads as being inevitable and help us in making our local streets safer.

To achieve this, Council is moving away from treating individual streets which traditionally have resulted in limited success and pushed onto adjoining streets, and focusing on area treatments and higher traffic routes to improve road safety and efficiency.

One of the areas we are focusing on is vehicle speeds, with safety strategies identifying lowering vehicle speeds by as little as 5 km/h as having the greatest improvements for road safety, and we are working with our community to deliver road safety improvements to all Charles Sturt residents by consulting and implementing 40 km/h speed limits on our local streets to make them safer places for our residents and visitors.

Reducing speeds to 40km will:

  • Provide more time for drivers to react to hazards on the road.
  • Decrease the distance required for a vehicle to stop.
  • Decrease the likelihood of losing control of the vehicle manoeuvring

The Minister for Transport has recently approved the installation of a 40 km/hr area speed limit in the following suburbs:

  • Renown Park
  • Croydon
  • West Croydon
  • Hindmarsh
  • West Hindmarsh
  • Welland
  • Allenby Gardens
  • St Clair
  • Woodville
  • Kilkenny

Major roadways will remain at their current speed limit.
