The speed limit on Concession 6 Road between Niagara Stone Road and Line 2 Road is likely to be lowered to 70 km/h from 80 km/h.

Town councillors unanimously approved a staff report recommending the speed change at Monday's committee of the whole meeting, but still need to vote on it at a regular meeting of council.

The report said town staff conducted a study of traffic volume and speed on the road between July 8 and 15. 

"During the investigation it was determined that the average speed was 62 km/h and the 85th percentile operating speed was 72 km/h."

The cost of converting two existing speed limit signs is an estimated $250.

"Staff will also determine if any additional signage may be required," the report said.

Signs will be posted to warn drivers of the change and "Niagara Regional Police will also be advised of the revised speed limits to assist in future enforcement activities."
