Speed limit in Glenroy Road, West Street and Widford Street

As part of the Moreland Integrated Transport Strategy (DOC 14Mb), Council is taking steps to reduce the speed limits in Glenroy Road, Widford Street and West Street in Glenroy and Hadfield from 60km per hour to 50km per hour.

It is anticipated that benefits of the lowered speed limits to the community will include improved amenity for pedestrians and cyclists, a reduction in through traffic volumes and a significant reduction in road crash trauma, with only a minimal impact on travel times.

Before submitting an application to VicRoads, Council sought feedback from the community on the proposed speed zone reductions. See the map below.

A survey seeking community feedback on the proposed speed reduction in Glenroy Road, Widford Street and West Street in Glenroy and Hadfield from 60km per hour to 50km per hour closed on Monday 13 August.

Council officers will review feedback received and make a submission to VicRoads.
