Speed limit change for Clayton Bay

The state government has given the green light to an Alexandrina Council proposal to extend the 50km/h speed limit past homes along the western side of Clayton Bay.


The recent Department for Infrastructure and Transport (DIT) decision will affect around 900m in the 80km/h section of Alexandrina Drive. 


The 50km/h extension starts along Finniss-Clayton Road, some 100m west, past the Clayton Street and Pearce Road intersection, to the existing 50km/h zone near Island View Drive.


“The community in Clayton Bay has raised multiple concerns about the safety of the 80km/h speed zone that runs through to the western side of Clayton Bay along Alexandrina Road, telling us that speed limit was too fast for the area,” says Alexandrina Mayor Keith Parkes.


“When we put the proposal to extend the 50km/h zone to the community during public consultation more than 90 per cent of residents who filled out the survey strongly supported the change.


“Council cannot change speed limits without approval from DIT so late last year we formally applied to the State Government to lower speeds to 50km/h.


“We were excited to learn that the final approval from DIT came through this week.


“New 50km/h and changed speed limit signs will be installed in the coming weeks.


“We encourage all residents and visitors who use Alexandrina Drive to be mindful of the lower speed limit.


“This is a great outcome for Clayton Bay, making this lakeside town safer for everyone and demonstrating that when communities work with Council we can advocate for positive change.”
