Speed limit changes will be implemented on the Pacific Highway at Banora Point in the next week, weather permitting.
Roads and Maritime Services (RMS) has carried out a review as part of the NSW audit of speed zones.
‘The review assessed a number of factors including road environment, traffic characteristics and crash data,’ Tweed Geoff MP Provest said on Friday.
‘The speed limit on the Pacific Highway between the southern end of Barneys Point Bridge and the southern end of the Tweed Heads bypass will increase to 100km/h in both directions.
‘In addition the 110km/h speed limit for southbound traffic will be reinstated from 300 metres south of Barneys Point Bridge.
‘The changes will better reflect the road conditions after completion of the Banora Point upgrade.’
Warning signs will be in place to advise motorists of the change and will remain for at least a week after the new speed limit signs have been installed.
Members of the community can sign up at the Safer Roads NSW website to receive updates about changes to permanent speed limits in their nominated area and have their say on speed limits.
