This is advanced notice of speed limit changes that will take effect within the next two weeks. Speed limits will not change until the new speed limit signs are installed. Please ensure that you always observe the posted speed limit signs on the road.

Road name From To Local Government Area Current speed limit km/h New speed limit km/h Reason for change
Wollombi Road 369 metres south of Doyle Street, Bellbird 80 metres west of Middle Road, Pelton Cessnock 80 60

This is a rural road with poor road geometry and crash history. This crash history and the road geometry have been taken into consideration. The speed limit change is expected to improve safety for road users.
