Fremantle Gazette - - AROUND THE SUBURBS -

COM­MU­NITY power has won out in Wray Av­enue, with the posted speed limit of­fi­cially dropped to 40km/h.

Fre­man­tle Mayor Brad Pet­titt said the City pe­ti­tioned for the lower speed limit around the Wray Av­enue shop­ping precinct af­ter years of feed­back from con­cerned mem­bers of the com­mu­nity.

He said the 40km/h limit, along with the traf­fic calm­ing de­vices in­stalled in 2015, would make the area safer for pedes­tri­ans.

“This will see Wray Av­enue be­come an even more at­trac­tive ur­ban vil­lage,” he said.

“Slow­ing cars through that sec­tion will add to the safety and amenity of the area.”

The limit ap­plies be­tween South Ter­race and Carnac Street as of Sep­tem­ber 18.

Hooray for Wray: Fre­man­tle Mayor Brad Pet­titt, Santo Galati, Frank Car­bone and Sal Galati cel­e­brate the lower speed limit along Wray Av­enue.
