As a result of the feedback received during this consultation, Adelaide City Council resolved to discontinue the 40km/h trial along Hutt Street and the South-Eastern precinct.
While the trial was successful in reducing mean traffic speeds and volumes, the consultation feedback demonstrated that Council needs to take a more holistic approach when implementing reduced speed limits in the city. More details of the feedback can be found on page 152 here.
The Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure approved Council's application to remove the 40km/h signs, and on Friday 3 October 2014, Hutt Street and the surrounding residential streets reverted to 50km/h.
