Speed Limit Review

The West Tamar Council are undertaking a review of Speed Limits in the municipality.

There are several factors that need to be considered in the review of speed limits, including:

  • What the road is used for
  • How many people use the road
  • Roadside development, such as the number of driveways along a road
  • The type and mix of users on the road
  • The width and alignment of the road
  • Minimising the number of times a speed limit changes in one section of road.

Ultimately the Commissioner for Transport (not a position held by Council) holds the power to make speed limit changes however, Council is responsible to undertake consultation and write a report to present to the Commissioner for consideration.

Feedback was accepted from Thursday 10th August 2023 until Thursday 24th August 2023. Council officers are now preparing a report which will be published here once completed.
