The RTA has carried out a speed review along Ocean Drive and Hastings River

Drive, Port Macquarie-Hastings.

An RTA spokesperson

said the review looked at minimising the number of speed

zone changes to reduce confusion for motorists and improve road safety.  

“The speed zone changes coming out of the review will go on public display before

coming into effect next year.  

“The review covered around 50 kilometres of road, and reduced the number of speed

zones from 17 to 15 (excluding school zones).

“The RTA has informed the Port Macquarie-Hastings Council of the outcomes of the

review and council will be implementing the changes.

“The speed zone review incorporated the entire length of Ocean Drive and Hastings

River Drive, from the Pacific Highway at Kew in the south, to the Pacific

Highway/Hastings River Drive intersection in the north. 

“People are encouraged to view the display so they are aware of the changes that

will come into effect next year.

“Speed limits in NSW are determined by a number of factors including the

surrounding conditions, road alignment, road usage, adjacent development, vehicle

types and volumes, crash history, and the number of access points along the route.”

An RTA spokesperson said the Council has arranged for the speed zone changes to

be displayed at the following locations from Thursday 10 December 2009 to 29

January 2010, during business hours.
