The move follows a review of speed limits in response to a petition to lower the speed limit in Pulgul Street between Boat Harbour Drive and Kent Street.

Council’s review indicated that if the speed limit was lowered in Pulgul Street, it should also be lowered in sections of King Street and Kent Street.
