Precinct-wide speed reduction to improve safety and quality of public space
Reduce speed limits in precincts and corridors of lower movement value to improve amenity and safety for staying, walking and cycling. Consider establishing 30km/h speed limits in areas of higher place value.
Benefits and considerations
Provides high level of safety in busy places
Increases amenity by allowing lanes to narrow, increasing space for walking cycling and staying
Allows for more crossing opportunity
This solution is physically easy to implement, allowing it to be trialled before adopting it permanently if desired

Use with caution
Manly’s 30km speed zone precinct joins the wharf to the beach across its commercial centre. The whole area benefits from less noise and achieves a balance between all modes of transport. Shared path connections extend from the precinct to provide access to and from nearby suburbs. Providing a shared path instead of a separated path encourages cyclists to use slower speeds, accommodating crossing of the corridor at various locations.
