We have a 30km/h speed zone within the Central City due to the high number of vulnerable road users – cyclists, pedestrians and scooterists – that use this space.
We're also carrying out various public consultations about lowering speed limits on select local roads.
The impact on your journey time with a 20km/h speed difference is very small but the consequences can be major.
- Teddington Straight is 1.8km long. At 100km/h it takes 65 seconds to travel the length of it while at 80km/h it takes 81 seconds – only 16 seconds more.
- Montreal Street’s 30km/h section is 1.1km long. At 50km/h it takes 79 seconds while at 30km/h it takes 132 seconds – less than a minute (53) seconds longer to drive through there.
