Reducing Speed


High PED area.JPG 

Speeding remains the greatest cause of death and injuries on our roads, contributing to approximately 40% of road fatalities.

Unless marked otherwise, the speed limit in Lane Cove is 50km/h. Areas with speed limits of 10, 40 or 60km/h are clearly marked.

Research from Transport for NSW indicates that slight reductions in vehicle speed will significantly reduce the severity of outcomes for pedestrians in the event of a crash.

Not all streets in Lane Cove are 50km/h and there are 40km/h High Pedestrian Activity Areas (HPAA), 40km/h School Zones and 10km/h Shared Zones. Please take note of signs when travelling around Lane Cove as these zones are in place to improve safety, especially for pedestrians.
