Speed zoning

We are responsible for speed zones on highways, freeways and some major roads across the state. Speed zone changes on local roads are at the request of the local government - which includes an investigation and assessment prior to any change being approved.

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