Mt Barker CBD Speed Limit Drop


The Mt Barker Council is keen to reduce the speed limit on all roads within the Mt Barker CBD to 40km an hour.

The limit is currently 50km an hour with the elected members saying while the drop may frustrate some residents, it will make it safer for pedestrians, cyclists and drivers.

The council will ask permission from the Department of Transport Planning and Infrastructure to reduse the limit on all roads between Mann Street, Adelaide Rd, Cameron Rd and Druids Ave.
