Interim State Highway Speed Management Plan

We all deserve a transport system that puts people at the centre – that protects and helps us to get to the places and people important to us, so we can live life to the full.

Speed limits were first set before we knew what was safe and appropriate for our roads. We know this harms people we care about and have a responsibility for.

It’s our responsibility to do better.

We’re taking practical steps to ensure we’re protecting the people and communities we care about. We welcome you to be part of that journey.

A new approach to managing speeds

To put people, and the diverse ways we use our roads and streets at the heart of how we plan and maintain our transport system, the way we manage speeds has changed.

A new Land Transport Rule: Setting of Speed Limits 2022 came into effect in May 2022, requiring road controlling authorities to develop speed management plans with a whole-of-network approach every three years, aligning with the National Land Transport Programme (NLTP) cycle.

As this legislation took effect during the current 2021-24 NLTP period, we’re taking a step towards the new approach by developing an Interim State Highway Speed Management Plan which includes remaining speed-related activities within the current NLTP. Next year we’ll share the State Highway Speed Management Plan for 2024-27 under the new legislation for feedback.

We’ll consider feedback from this consultation alongside existing information to finalise the interim plan. Once the plan has been certified, we’ll publish it online, and implement speed limits during the time periods proposed in the plan.

Consultation is open from 14 November to 12 December 2022.
