  • Engineering solutions can sometimes be used to reduce the speeding issue, funding dependant
  • This includes gateway features to villages and towns, road humps, rumble strips or lining and signing.
  • In some cases, the speed limit for a section of road may be found to be at odds with other roads in the area. This could be due to changes since the speed limit was originally installed. The speed limit may need to be reviewed, in these cases.
