This consultation is now closed. Thank you for providing your feedback.

Background

Campbelltown City Council, in conjunction with Adelaide Hills Council, are proposing a reduction in speed limit from 60kmh to 50kmh in the section of Stradbroke Road between Morialta Road and Baroota Avenue, Rostrevor. This road is shared by both Campbelltown and Adelaide Hills councils.

In early 2020 both councils worked together to propose a speed reduction for the entire length of Stradbroke Road however the Community was divided in its support for this proposal.

A 50kmh speed limit in this section of Stradbroke Road would support:

  • Improved safety for cyclists and pedestrians including at the entrance to Morialta Conservation Park
  • Reduction in road crash severity
  • Reduced risk to wildlife

The popularity of the Morialta Mukanthi Nature Play Space in recent years has resulted in increased visitor traffic using this road, including buses for school and kindergarten excursions. Both Councils are enthusiastic about promoting this wonderful destination to visitors and doing what we can to ensure safe visitation.

A speed reduction would place Stradbroke Road in line with the Department of Infrastructure and Transport’s recommended speed for the road. Morialta Road and Glen Stuart Road, located adjacent Stradbroke Road, are both in the same category of road and have speed limits of 50kmh.
