Extension of 50 km/h speed zone on the Princes Highway at Narooma

A speed limit reduction will be introduced this month on a section of the Princes Highway near the Hillcrest Avenue intersection to improve safety. A Transport for NSW spokesperson said the speed limit would be reduced from 100 km/h to extend the existing 50 km/h speed zone 370 metres north. “A speed zone review was carried out in accordance with the NSW Speed Zoning Guidelines following requests from the community and nearby residents,” the spokesperson said. “The review looked at the roadside environment on the approach to Narooma, which includes access to a farm and an intersection. "The extended speed zone will improve safety for road users by increasing the time motorists have to slow down to react to the changing traffic conditions, and improve visibility for vehicles turning in and out of Hillcrest Avenue.” New signs will be installed on the approach to the new speed zone on Monday 19 June, weather permitting. The new speed zone will then come into effect. Message boards will be on-site two weeks before and one week following the speed zone reduction. Motorists are reminded to drive to the signposted speed limit at all times. Members of the community can sign up to receive the latest updates on permanent speed limit changes in their nominated area and to have their say on speed limits. For more information visit
