40 zones

SHANE Rattenbury has announced the results of an evaluation of 40 km/h speed limit precincts in the Belconnen, City and Tuggeranong town centres which have been operating for a year.

“Territory and Municipal Services (TAMS) undertook an evaluation of the 40 km/h speed limit precincts earlier this year to measure their effectiveness and the level of public support. Of the 450 people surveyed, 72% support the reduced speed limit precincts in the Belconnen, City and Tuggeranong town centres saying that they felt pedestrians and cyclists were safer since their introduction,” Shane said.

“We are now considering the extension of these slow speed precincts to Group Centres such as Dickson and Erindale. This initial evaluation work will commence shortly.”
