Last week I filed a fix my street report about the Canberra Ave speed limit. Received a call back today from a Roads ACT rep saying that the Westbound 100 km/h speed limit was recently reviewed and the decision to implement an 80 km/h speed limit to match the Eastbound carriageway was made.
Provided signs are installed correctly, this will bring Canberra Ave’s speed limits back into line with Australian Standards for this section of the road.
The Australian Standard for Speed Controls requires that 100 km/h zones be at least 2 km in length. The 100 km/h zone on Canberra Ave is only 1 km in length.
