Mandeville Speed Limit Review

Changes in the Mandeville community have suggested that it’s time to take a look at the speed limits in and around the Mandeville area and talk to the community about what they think.

Why the need for review?

The Mandeville community has changed significantly, from a predominantly large block rural area, to an area of smaller block rural/residential areas. 

There are a number of factors to take into consideration when thinking about changing the existing speed limits:

  • Traffic volumes on Tram, Bradleys and McHugh’s Roads have increased.
  • The number and proximity of property accesses on existing roads has increased, and a number of new cud-de-sacs and residential streets are now accessible from main roads.
  • An increase in population will have a likely increase in the number of pedestrians and bike riders using the road network.
  • Current speed limits along the roads within the Mandeville area are inconsistent.
  • The site to the south west of the Tram Road/McHughs Road intersection has been zoned Business 4 and the expected development of this site is likely to result in further impacts of the road network in the area.
  • Community feedback suggests that the speed limits on some roads within the area are no longer appropriate for the road environment.

We want to keep our communities safe and ensure that speed limits in Mandeville are consistent and relevant.

The map below outlines the speed limits that are currently in place.
