A SPEED limit change will be implemented on the Pacific Highway at Clarenza in the next fortnight, weather permitting.
Member for Clarence Chris Gulaptis said Roads and Maritime Services (RMS) has carried out a review as part of the NSW audit of speed zones.
"The review assessed a number of factors including road environment, traffic characteristics and crash data," Mr Gulaptis said.
"The 100km/h speed limit on the Pacific Highway will be extended from 360 metres north of Centenary Drive to 260 metres north of McClares Lane for northbound traffic and 170 metres south of McClares Lane for southbound traffic.
"The changes will provide a more consistent approach to speed limits along the road and considers the upgrade to the Centenary Drive intersection," Mr Gulaptis said.
Warning signs will be in place to advise motorists of the changes and will remain for at least a week after the new speed limit signs have been installed.
