Speed limit review stage 2

We're currently working on stage 2 of the districtwide Speed Limit Review. The aim of the review is to make sure the speed limits on our local roads are safe, appropriate and consistent across the District.

We've identified 81 local roads for this stage of the review, to see whether they merit a speed limit change - these are listed in the table below. The roads will be reviewed using a similar process to the Stage 1 speed limit review.

Consultation for stage 2 of the it review will begin in February 2019.

  • General reviews of the roads that have had lower speed limits imposed in our Stage 1 review will be carried out regularly, including Poplar Avenue.
  • The focus of this (stage 2) review is to complete the review of rural roads and three village areas. It does not include existing state highways or old state highways that are in a process of being 'revoked'.  The speed limits on these roads is managed separately by NZTA.
  • There are some roads where physical works need to be carried out to lower the speed environment before any speed limit changes can be made. These roads include Marine Parade Ōtaki, Waerenga Road Ōtaki, and the 80 km/h section of Tasman Road Ōtaki.
  • A speed limit review was requested to see if some or all schools would be eligible for a 40 km/h speed limit before and after the school.  However, this review is on hold pending New Zealand Transport Authority's (NZTA) guidance.
