Council is now implementing reductions to the speed limit on a number of roads west of Torquay, in line with the Victorian Government and TAC’s 'Towards Zero' road safety campaign.

The changes are expected to come into effect from August/September 2023.
Please be mindful of these changes as they come into place.

The changes include reduced speed limits as follows:

- Anglesea Road to Ghazeepore Road – will reduce from 100kph to 80kph
- Ghazeepore Road to Messmate Road – will reduce from 80kph to 70kph
- Messmate Road to existing 50kph zone – will reduce from 80kph to 60kph

- Ghazeepore Road to Messmate Road – will reduce from 80kph to 70kph

Grossmans Road to Coombes Road – will reduce from 80kph to 60kph

The changes in speed zones considered feedback received through the survey process undertaken in September 2021. Community sentiment for the change based on the survey responses was largely positive with a majority support obtained for the proposed changes.

The speed limit changes, developed in consultation with Victoria Police and the Department of Transport, align more appropriately with the surrounding road network and respond to growing community concerns, whilst minimising impact on commercial activity.
