Input sought on proposed 40km/h speed limit precincts

Interested Canberrans are invited by the ACT Government to provide input into the proposed boundaries for the 40 kilometre per hour (km/h) speed limit precincts in Belconnen, Civic and Tuggeranong.

Following its successful introduction in Gungahlin and Woden earlier this year, the ACT Government is now introducing the reduced 40 km/h speed limit in Belconnen, Civic and Tuggeranong town centres to improve safety for pedestrians, cyclists and other road users.

Precincts have been identified in each of these three town centres where there is a high level of pedestrian movement and where there are roads with a minimum of 400 metres of retail and commercial development.

It is anticipated that the new 40km/h speed areas will be implemented by December 2012, and will operate 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

To view the proposed boundaries and submit feedback visit the Belconnen, Civic or Tuggeranong library, Canberra Connect shopfronts or

Consultation closes at 5.00pm on Friday 21 September 2012.
