A 40km/h speed limit will be imposed on Hopetoun Circuit between Grey Street and Bedford Street, Deakin, by June.
According to the Deakin Residents Association, Minister Chris Steel will also impose a 40km/h limit on Macgregor Street between Hopetoun Circuit and Jervois Street.
A raised pedestrian crossing will be built at the existing pedestrian crossing on Hopetoun Circuit near MacGregor Street and there will be a speed hump on Hopetoun Circuit adjacent to Grey Street.
Despite being pleased, the association complained that the downside will be a more “ugly signs damaging the cityscape”.
“We look forward to minimal and small size signage. Manuka and Kingston speed signs are too big!” they lamented.
