Speed zoning

To ensure a safe environment for all road users, it is necessary to review and modify certain speed zones.

The enforcement of speed limits enables traffic flow, maximises road capacity, minimises overtaking and reduces crash risk.

While we are responsible for speed zoning on highways, freeways and some major roads across the state, speed zone changes on local roads are at the request of the local government. An investigation and assessment is then carried out, prior to any change being approved. Image: Driving in WA speed limit.JPG

Proposed changes below are implements from the past six months as part of our ongoing review of speed limits in the metropolitan and regional areas.
