COMMUNITY power has won the day in Wray Avenue, with the speed limit officially dropped to 40km/h.

Fremantle mayor Brad Pettitt said the City petitioned for the lower speed limit around the Wray Avenue shopping precinct after years of feedback from concerned members of the community.

He said the 40km/h limit, along with the traffic calming devices installed in 2015, would make the area safer for pedestrians.

“This will see Wray Avenue become an even more attractive urban village,” he said.

“There’s a great community feeling in that neighbourhood and slowing cars through that section will add to the safety and amenity of the area.”

The limit applies between South Terrace and Carnac Street as of September 18.
