Speed limits on country roads

We are dedicated to strengthening regional SA

What we’ll do

A Marshall Liberal Government will reverse the Weatherill Government’s reduction in speed limits on eight country roads and instead review country speed limits on a systematic basis.

Our review will include an identification of roads that require maintenance or upgrade, rather than simply a reduction in the speed limit, to reduce the risk of accidents.

Our approach prioritises better investment in public infrastructure rather than superficially dropping speed limits. We will properly invest in our regional roads rather than apply a band-aid fix.

Why we’re doing it

Instead of undertaking more maintenance work on our regional roads to improve safety, the government’s response has been to reduce speed limits on eight country roads.

That may increase government revenue through fines, but does nothing to make our roads safer.

That’s why we will prioritise investing in country roads as a much better way to improve road safety.
