Liberal Member for Penrith Stuart Ayres has welcomed the NSW Government’s audit of speed limits across the road network with three roads in the Penrith area being identified for review in the first quarter of the new year.
\”Residents across the state have contacted the NSW Government to raise their concerns about speed limits along the M4, the Great Western Highway and Castlereagh Road.\” Mr Ayres said today.
\”Of these roads, the one to receive the most submissions was the M4 with 33 responses, with the Great Western Highway on 7 and Castlereagh Road on 6.
\”This move forms part of the delivery on our election commitment to an audit of speed limits on NSW roads. This audit is designed to determine whether the speed limits on these roads are inappropriate, inconsistent or dangerous – a necessary move to ensure smoother, safer traffic flows into the future.\”
NSW Roads Minister Duncan Gay encouraged people to continue visiting the Safer Roads NSW website to provide comments and feedback.
“We want to hear what people have to say about speed limits or speed limit signs so we can continue looking into the areas where people have concerns,” he said.
“The information provided by the community has helped the NSW Centre for Road Safety prioritise the corridors to be reviewed.
“Feedback received will be used to determine roads for future speed limit reviews, so keep visiting the website and sending in your comments.”
