Like you, we have questioned the existence of 80km/h speed limit signs on many of our rural roads. And it turns out that guidance already exists to remove or replace many of them.
We have put together a short document setting out what the guidance says, why we think this matters and what else we think should be done.
We hope that this document might help in ensuring the guidance is followed across the country.
Simply removing and replacing 80km/h signs is not the solution. We know that.
But we also know that each of these small acts contributes to creating a safer and more attractive road environment for all.
And that is, we believe, always worth doing.
The document is available to read and download here.
