a sign on the side of a road: O'Riordan Street at Alexandria (pictured) in inner-Sydney has a speed limit warning on the road warning 60km/h, and two signs claiming the speed is 50km/h and 40km/h© Provided by Associated Newspapers Limited O'Riordan Street at Alexandria (pictured) in inner-Sydney has a speed limit warning on the road warning 60km/h, and two signs claiming the speed is 50km/h and 40km/h A Sydney street with three different marked speed limits has left motorists baffled.

The three-lane Alexandria street, in the city's inner suburbs, has a limit of 60km/hr clearly painted in white on the road.

But just metres from the marking on the road there is a red light speed camera warning marked 50, and below that a roadwork sign reading 40.

A photo of the confusing signage was posted to Reddit, sparking a heated debate about which speed limit was the correct one to follow.

Five different speed limits in just three miles! Baffled drivers complain over series of restrictions within five minutes' drive on busy A road . Drivers forced to change their speed five times going northbound on the A 1 . Speed cameras have been put up to catch out and snap speeding drivers.

'S**t is ridiculous, and they are planning on removing the speed camera signs...' one person wrote.

'It's 100% revenue raising. The sign actually forces slowing in black spots, no sign just means more money. Sure no one should speed, but we don't live in that dimension,' another wrote.

'Do 40... but blimey guys, get your s**t together!' wrote a third.

According to NSW road rules, the speed limit is enforced if the numbers are surrounded by a red ring, which rules out the 60km/h on the road.

However, with two different signs on the side of the street, many were still stumped.

'So the numbers on the road virtually mean nothing, in the eyes of the road laws. But technically, the 50 sign is after the 40 sign. So it'd be 50,' one user commented.

Another suggested that the speed limit may have been temporarily changed due to an upcoming construction site.

'Where a road work speed limit sign is displayed, the speed limit is enforceable and must be obeyed. When approaching roadworks pay attention to all signs and obey reduced speed signs,' the RMS website reads.

Meanwhile, others joked about the freedom the multiple speed signs gave.

'So you know the min and the max.. what’s better than that...' another said.
