Proposed 40kmph speed limits for selected areas in Newington

Proposal to install ‘40km/h High Pedestrian Activity Areas (HPAA)’ and Speed Cushions in selected streets in Newington

City of Parramatta Council is proposing to install ‘40km/h High Pedestrian Activity Areas (HPAA)’ restrictions in the following locations in Newington as listed below and shown below:

  • Avenue of Oceania
  • Avenue of Europe
  • Avenue of Africa
  • Avenue of Americas


To reduce vehicle speed, it is also proposed to install speed cushions in Avenue of Oceania, Avenue of Europe and Avenue of Americas as shown in these sketches.

These locations have been selected as they are high pedestrian activity areas within the Newington retail precinct and provide access to industrial and high-density residential developments. There is also a history of pedestrian injury accidents at these locations.

Council invites written submissions from residents, businesses and relevant authorities.  Submissions must be provided to Council by Tuesday, 23 March 2021.

Submissions can be sent to:

Please include your street address and survey reference number (TS 2021 06) in any response you provide.

The Parramatta Traffic Committee and Council will consider responses to this consultation prior to determining the matter.  All survey respondents will be advised of Council’s decision in May 2021.

For further information, please contact Council's Traffic and Transport Section on 9806 8479.
