Review of Default Speed Limits within the City of Wanneroo

Gibson, R

Speed Limits 2

ARSC conference 2017

The City of Wanneroo is one of the fastest growing Local Governments in Western Australia. The increased population means more road users and more vehicles on roads that were not built to a rural standard now performing an urban function resulting in an increased road safety risk.

As a result, the City undertook a desktop review of all roads that operated under the state default speed limit of 110km/h. The review identified 20 roads that required a speed limit review which were submitted to Main Roads WA which has approved lower speeds for all 20 roads.
