New speed limits around light rail areas
New speed limits will be introduced to improve safety for all road users around the CBD and South East Light Rail route.
From 1 December, speed limits will be reduced on roads along the light rail route in the Sydney CBD, Surry Hills, Moore Park, Centennial Park, Randwick, Kensington and Kingsford. Speed limits will also be reduced on some roads in Surry Hills and Darlinghurst to create a consistent speed limit.
The reduced speed limits will improve safety around the new light rail ahead of the first passenger services starting in December, especially in areas where pedestrian activity is high.
Following a speed zone review, the following changes will be made to speed limits:
- Anzac Parade, between Abbotford Street and Sturt Street, Kensington/Kingsford, reduced from 60 km/h to 50 km/h
- Anzac Parade, approx. 280m south of Moore Park Road to Abbotford Street, Kensington, reduced from 70 km/h to 60 km/h
- Alison Road, between Anzac Parade and Darley Road, reduced from 70 km/h to 60 km/h
- High Street, between Wansey Road and Avoca Street, Randwick, reduced from 50 km/h to 40 km/h and classed as a High Pedestrian Activity Area
