Tomakin Road Residents Group request for lower speed limit to be considered
In response to recent concerns raised by the Tomakin Road Residents Group regarding the speed limit on Tomakin Road and associated safety issues the group have now been advised by Transport for NSW (Transport) that a review of the existing 100km/h speed limit on Tomakin Road will be undertaken.
Transport also advised that it has consulted with Eurobodalla Shire Council, who have outlined their plans to undertake safety improvements on Tomakin Road. Transport for NSW say in their advice that depending on the nature of the work undertaken by Council, the upgrades may have an impact on the appropriate speed zone for
Tomakin Road. Consequently, Transport have said that they will undertake and finalise the speed zone review once Council’s work is complete. Transport NSW has noted that Eurobodalla Shire Council have begun discussions with Tomakin Road residents regarding the upgrade work. They have now advised the residents group, in regards to speed limits, that "when assessing speed zones various factors are considered, in accordance with the NSW Speed
Zoning Guidelines. These factors include, but are not limited to, the road function, roadside
development, frequency of property accesses, pedestrian and cyclist usage, 85th percentile travel speeds, road alignment, traffic characteristics and crash history."
