Speed limit changes coming to Hammonds Plains Road
The Halifax Regional Municipality is advising residents that the speed limit will be reduced on sections of Hammonds Plains Road in Bedford, Hammonds Plains and Tantallon.
The reduced speed zones are located between Highway 102 and St. Margarets Bay Road. The speed limits in these zones will be reduced by 10 km/h on most sections.
Crews will be posting the new signage this week.
This change is a result of an assessment of the corridor, related to changes in conditions and activities along the roadway.
This effort supports the municipality’s Strategic Road Safety Plan, which aims to reduce fatal and injury collisions on municipal roadways. For more information about the Strategic Road Safety Plan and other road safety countermeasures, visit halifax.ca/roadsafety.
