Reduced speed limits on the way at Griffith


Motorists will soon experience safer journeys on Rifle Range and Jones roads at Griffith, with the speed limit set to be reduced next month.

A Transport for NSW spokesperson said the speed limit will drop from 100 km/h to 80 km/h for the entire length of Rifle Range Road and two kilometres of Jones Road from Wednesday 6 March.

“A speed zone review was carried out in response to a request from Griffith City Council due to increased residential development in the area and following three crashes recorded in recent years,” the spokesperson said.

“Reducing the speed limit on these roads will apply consistency to the speed zone lengths within the area and improve safety for motorists.

“Speeding is the biggest contributor to road trauma in NSW, so it’s important that motorists are aware of the changed speed limit and follow the road rules.

“In NSW, speeding contributes to 40 per cent of road fatalities and 24 per cent of serious injuries from road crashes each year.

“Speeding increases both the risk of a crash happening, as well as the likelihood of death or serious injury.”

Signs will be in place to advise motorists of the new speed limit.
