Slow down for safety at Junction Hill
MOTORISTS are encouraged to slow down before a reduced speed limit is introduced in the next fortnight on Trenayr Road at Junction Hill to increase safety.
"Roads and Maritime Services is committed to providing the community with safer roads by reducing crash risk for road users," a Roads and Maritime Services spokesperson said.
"The existing 50km/h speed limit on Trenayr Road will be extended by 480 metres from the junction with Summerland Way and continue north for a total distance of 870 metres.
"Roads and Maritime carried out a speed zone review of the road in accordance with the NSW Speed Zoning Guidelines in consultation council which found safety would be increased if the speed limit was reduced.
"The review assessed a number of factors including road environment, traffic volume and crash data.
"Warning signs to give motorists advanced notice of the speed limit changes will be in place before the new speed limit signs are installed by council. The signs will remain in place for at least a week after the new speed limit signs are installed," a Roads and Maritime spokesperson said.
