Have your say on proposed reduced speed limits

Council is proposing to lower the speed limits at a number locations to continue to encourage a safer interaction between all types of road users, and to provide more attractive and liveable environments.

In the June edition of Glen Eira News, we reported the implementation of lower speed limits at eight locations on major Council roads.

Council is proposing to lower the speed limit at more locations to continue to encourage a safer interaction between all types of road users, and to provide more attractive and liveable environments.

The proposed locations for the next speed limit reductions are:

  1. Tucker Road, Bentleigh/McKinnon/Ormond, for the entire length
    • Reduce the speed limit from 60km/h to 50km/h (existing 40 km/h school zones would be retained).
  2. Tucker Road, Ormond, between North Road and McKinnon Road
    • Provide a part-time 40 km/h speed limit from 8am to 5pm on school days in the vicinity of McKinnon Primary School, which has a split campus on both sides of Tucker Road (the speed limit would be 50 km/h at all other times as proposed above).
  3. Koornang Road, Carnegie/Ormond, for the entire length
    • Reduce the speed limit from 60km/h to 50km/h. Existing part-time 40 km/h zone would be retained through the Carnegie shopping centre.
  4. Mackie Road, Bentleigh East, for the entire length
    • Reduce the speed limit from 60km/h to 50km/h (existing 40 km/h school zone would be retained).
  5. Kangaroo Road, Murrumbeena, between Murrumbeena and Poath Roads
    • Reduce the speed limit from 60km/h to 50km/h.
  6. Inkerman Road, Caulfield North, between Orrong Road and Normanby Road
    • Reduce the speed limit from 60km/h to 50km/h.
  7. Alma Road, Caulfield North, between Orrong Road and Dandenong Road
    • Reduce the speed limit from 60km/h to 50km/h.
  8. Gardenvale Road, Gardenvale/Caulfield South, between Hawthorn Road and Begonia Road
    • Reduce the speed limit from 60km/h to 50km/h.

We are seeking your feedback regarding the proposed changes.
