Consultation on Tech Central Camperdown

Inner West at 40 Exhib October 11– 8 November 2023

"The InnerWest@40 study proposes to make the speed limit on local streets a maximum of 40 km/hr. The Study also proposes a rationalisation of speed zoning on Regional Roads, generally bringing them all to 50 km/hr with 40 km/hr in school zones and other areas with a lot of pedestrians. In the longer term it proposes opportunities for 30 km/hr speed limits in areas where there are lots of pedestrians. The study contains next steps for Council to work on with Transport for NSW." https://yoursay.innerwest.nsw.gov.au/inner-west-40
