Hills MPs are advising motorists of changes to speed limits on Windsor Road between Kellyville and Baulkham Hills in the next two weeks.
Member for Baulkham Hills David Elliott said RMS carried out a review of Windsor Road as part of the NSW audit of speed zones.
“The review assessed a number of factors including road environment, traffic characteristics and crash data,” Mr Elliott said.
Member for Castle Hill Dominic Perrottet said the review resulted in speed changes in the Hills on major roads.
“As a result of the review the 80km/h speed limit through Kellyville will be extended by 480 metres to just west of Acres Road,” Mr Perrottet said.
“The 70km/h speed limit through Baulkham Hills will be extended by 790 metres to Parsonage Road.”
Member for Hawkesbury Ray Williams said the changes removed confusion and allowed motorists to concentrate on the road rather than road signs.
“The changes will provide consistent speed limits for motorists travelling on Windsor Road,” Mr Williams said.
“Motorists are reminded to drive carefully and pay extra attention during the transition period.”
Electronic message signs will be in place a week before the new speed limit signs are installed to advise motorists of the change.
These message signs will remain in place for at least a week after the speed limit change.
RMS expects the new speed limit signs to be installed from 9 July, weather permitting.
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.
