Stuart Ayres MP, Member for Penrith joined Nepean Police Local Area Commander, Superintendent Chris Keane to announce that safety will be improved for motorists with changes to speed limits along Caddens Road and O’Connell Street at Caddens.

Stuart Ayres said Transport for NSW carried out a speed zone review after requests from NSW Police and the community to reduce speed limits on these roads.

“The changes to the speed limits were assessed on a number of factors including crash history, road geometry, road environment and traffic volumes.” Stuart Ayres.

The speed limit will be reduced from 60 km/h to 50 km/h on Caddens Road from 210 metres east of Bringelly Road to Gipps Street, and on O’Connell Street between Second Avenue and 120m west of Gershwin Crescent.

The new speed limit signs are expected to be installed from Monday 29 June, weather permitting. The new reduced speed limit will be in place from Tuesday 30 June.

Community members can sign up at the Safer Roads NSW website to receive updates about changes to permanent speed limits in their nominated area.
