Speed Limit Review

The Department of State Growth is applying to the Commissioner for Transport to reduce the speed limit on Vinces Saddle from 100km/hr to 80km/hr in both directions, for a roughly 4km stretch from the cemetery (towards Hobart).

The Department is also seeking community feedback on whether road users want the speed limit reduction to also include the section from the top of the hill at Vinces Saddle to about 300 metres past the Huon Highway/Sandfly Road intersection.

Based on the feedback received, the department will apply to the Commissioner for a reduction at Vinces Saddle to either include the downhill approach to the intersection, or just for the 4km past the cemetery.
