The speed limit inside the CBD is 30 km/hr. The lower speeds were introduced more than six years ago but some people still don’t observe them.
With narrow streets and courtesy crossings throughout the centre of town it makes sense to keep vehicle speeds down.
The ‘30’ speed signs are on each side of the road at all the main entrance points to the CBD but sometimes drivers just don’t seem to see them. If you’re driving into town, please watch out for these signs; the slower speed limit is set by Council bylaw and is enforced by the Police. Remember too, vehicles using any of the narrow Lanes inside the CBD must not travel any faster than 20 km/hr.
