Proposal to reduce the speed limit on residential streets in Norwood and Kent Town


Ratepayers and residents are being encouraged to have their say on whether the speed limit should be reduced from 50km/h to 40km/h in residential streets in Norwood and Kent Town.

As slower speeds are often associated with safer streets and neighbourhoods, the 50km/h to 40km/h reduction was a proposal the Council was considering as a way improve safety for all road users.

In 2019, a speed limit reduction was implemented successfully in Stepney, Maylands and Evandale.

A selection of these streets were evaluated in 2020 which identified a successful outcome with mean speeds reducing by up to 4km/h.

Residents, home-owners and businesses in Norwood and Kent Town will receive a postcard with a QR Code and link to the Council’s website that will provide details of the proposal and a short on-line survey.  

The consultation period closes on 21 June and a report will be presented to the Council detailing the outcomes of the community consultation.
