Changes to speed limits in Waverley

40km Throughout the LGA, speed sign from Bondi Beach

To achieve ‘vision zero’, with zero fatalities and minimal serious injuries, Council is reducing speed limits from 50km/h to 40km/h across the Waverley Local Government Area (LGA).

In various community consultations, Waverley residents raised concerns around pedestrian safety and the overwhelming need for cars to travel slower in their neighbourhoods.

The proposed changes reflect People, Movement and Places (2017) strategy which aims to make it easier for everyone to travel by improving the quality of streetscapes and public places.
