The city council is doing more to ensure the safety of residents of property in Darwin while they are out on the road.
Temporary digital Speed Check Signs will be installed on various streets around the city throughout 2014 to ensure the speed limit is adhered to and safe use of roads for both drivers and pedestrians. The signs will be installed on a different street every two weeks and will help promote safe driving practices.
Each sign is able to accurately detect the speed a vehicle is travelling and will display the words 'Slow Down' when the recorded speed exceeds the official limit. Any variation in the speed limit zones, such as areas near schools, can be programmed into the signs.
The signs are currently located on Moil Crescent and Brolaga Street and will be relocated in April, the full list of the program for installation is available on the council website.
Installation of these signs comes after the Northern Territory government has made a number of commitments to improving and upgrading the road networks in and around Darwin city. This is to ensure the region is able to accommodate high population growth over the coming years and so real estate in Darwin remains a great choice for residents, now and in the future.
