Dalmeny Drive at North Narooma is being made safer for road users with the reduction of an existing speed zone.
A Transport for NSW spokesperson said the speed zone along Dalmeny Drive, for 850 metres from the Princes Highway to just west of Warbler Crescent, will be reduced from 80 km/h to 60 km/h.
“Transport for NSW reviewed the speed zone in accordance with the NSW Speed Zoning Guidelines following requests from community members,” the spokesperson said.
“The implementation of a 60 km/h speed zone along Dalmeny Drive will make it safer for motorists, particularly those travelling in and out of residential housing developments that are accessed from this road.
“The permanent speed zone change will also make it safer for pedestrians using this section of road to access Carters and Kianga Beaches.
“One crash has been recorded along this stretch of road in the last five years of validated data. Transport for NSW is committed to ensuring our road network is safe for all motorists and that we minimise the risk of death or serious injury wherever possible.”
The new speed zone will come into effect on Tuesday 14 June, weather permitting.
Message boards will be onsite two weeks before and one week following the speed zone reduction.
Motorists are reminded to drive to the sign posted speed limit at all times for the safety of all transport customers.
