Speed Limit Change Gelorup

Main Roads, in consultation with the Shire of Capel, have introduced a new 70 km/h speed zone for the special rural part of Gelorup, as depicted in the below map.

This follows a speed zone review for Gelorup and Stratham, which was also speed zoned to a uniform 70km/h late last year.

The residential zone of Gelorup maintains a default 50km/h speed zone, which is the uniform speed zone for built up areas in Western Australia.
