In the month of July, Sydney Olympic Park Authority is reminding motorists to slow down as part of a road safety campaign.
It’s a message that we all know, and an important one to be reminded of for everyone’s safety – motorists, cyclists and pedestrians. This is especially the case here at Sydney Olympic Park as a major events destination, where we have huge numbers of pedestrians.
To help drive this message home, we have:
- Asked NSW Police to have a greater presence on the roads monitoring and enforcing speed limits
- Placed visual message signs at different locations in the Park that clocks and displays the speed of motorists and reminds them of the speed limit
- Displayed a “Slow Down – People About” and a “How fast are you going?” message on the large signs as you enter the Park
What’s the speed limit at Sydney Olympic Park?
As we have such high numbers of pedestrians, most of the roads within the core centre of Sydney Olympic Park are 40km/hour.
Some of the major roads surrounding the Park like Australia, Edwin Flack, Kevin Coombs and Sarah Durack Avenues are 60 km/hour.
We have come across a very useful app called Speed Adviser. The app has been developed by Transport for NSW to reduce speeding and save lives.
The Speed Adviser App features:
- Accurate speed zone information for NSW roads
- Clear speed limit announcements
- Announcements when entering an active school zone
- Spoken and visual warnings when the speed limit is exceeded
- Speed limit warnings reduced to 100km/h for P2 drivers
- Day and night mode
Find out more about the app and how to download it on the Centre for Road Safety website
Check your speed limit when travelling in Sydney Olympic Park and please slow down
