What we are doing
Council will install new 40km/h speed limit signs on most of Council owned residential roads in Maidstone, Maribyrnong and Braybrook (North).
When we are doing it
Works will commence in early October 2021 and will take about eight weeks to complete, weather permitting.
How this will impact you
You may experience changed traffic conditions following the implementation of lower speed limits, including easing of congestion on roads.
After the installation of the new speed limit signs, there will be enforcement by Victoria Police to encourage drivers to obey the 40km/h speed limit.
Speed limits on local residential roads owned by Council within the highlighted area will be reduced from the existing 50km/h to 40 km/h.
Collector Council roads such as some sections of Mitchell Road, Rosamond Road Williamson Road and Emu Road will be reduced from the existing 60km/h to 50 km/h.
Industrial roads such as Lacy Street, Evans Road, parts of Cranwell Road and Chewton Street remained as 50 km/h.
Existing 40 school zones will remain unchanged during school hours.
Existing speed limits on arterial roads (shown in green e.g. Ballarat Road, Ashley Street, Hampstead Road, Gordon Street, Raleigh Road, Van Ness Avenue, Farnsworth Avenue) managed by VicRoads/Department of Transport will remained unchanged.
