The City of Melbourne is investigating a 40km/h speed limit in Kensington as a result of community feedback. We have gathered data that indicates a reduced speed limit in Kensington will improve road safety outcomes.

Lower speed limits in these areas will save lives and prevent and reduce the amount of casualty accidents every year. A pedestrian hit by a vehicle travelling at 50km/h is four times more likely to be killed or seriously injured than if hit at 40km/h.

Consultation on the 40km/h speed limit closed on 22 May 2015.
