You may notice the signs already in place, however with a cover over them, as council await the thumbs up from Transport for NSW (TfNSW).

In the June ordinary council meeting, the matter was outstanding from a previous meeting regarding Gilgandra CBD becoming a 40km/h zone.

Mayor Doug Batten asked about the implementation of the reduced zone in Gilgandra, to which TfNSW representative Richard Drooger advised there were some system issues within TfNSW, and the zone’s ‘go live’ date was yet to be established.

At the meeting, director of infrastructure Daryl Colwell commented that all signs and ancillary items have been delivered, and the signs were rostered to be in place before the end of the financial year.

The signs were put up on Monday, July 11 - there has been no clear indication of when the new speed zone will become effective.
