Why was this area chosen?
As outlined in the Smart Move Strategy, Adelaide City Council intends over time to calm traffic in the city to create a city with great streets and places for people that is safer and easier to access for all users.
Hutt Street was selected for the trial as it is a local main street for the community; it has shops, restaurants, cafes and a range of community and social services and facilities; all of which service the south-east community and visitors.

What happens to my feedback?
Council staff will review and consider all comments and feedback received, before determining the next steps and the trial’s potential future. Staff will also consider the outcomes of the 40km/h pre and post-trial studies (traffic speeds, travel times, traffic volumes, noise and street user perception surveys).
A report with recommendations will be presented to Council in August 2014, where a final decision will be made regarding the future of the 40km/h speed trial.
What is the area covered by the trial?
The 40km/h speed trial limit applies along Hutt Street from its intersection with Flinders Street to South Terrace, and within the area bounded by East Terrace and South Terrace and Wakefield Road, excepting Wakefield Road (refer to the area map).
Is lowering the speed limit about revenue raising?
No, it’s about putting people and their safety first. It’s about improving the walkability and liveability of the city. The Adelaide City Council aims to build a road environment in which motorists feel encouraged to reduce their vehicle speeds without penalty, thus positively contributing to the environment.
