Naylor Street in Carcoar, Forest Reefs Road and Mandurama Road have each been named as needing urgent action.
Chair of the Blayney Shire Council Traffic Committee councillor Bruce Reynolds said that new signage in Carcoar would be the first step in improving safety in the village.
"There is a speeding issue with cars coming down from either Mount McDonald Road or Felltimber Road and then passing the new play area that council is building," he said.
"We're firstly going to be putting up larger speed limit signs on these two roads, some before the highway overpass and a repeater on Naylor Street."
If those measures don't have an impact on the speeding figures, Cr Reynolds said that council would need to look at something more dramatic.
"We will need to look at some kind of traffic calming devices such as speed humps," he said.
