Speed limit review stage 2

We are currently working on stage 2 of the District wide Speed Limit Review. The aim of the review is to ensure the speed limits on our local roads are safe and appropriate and consistent across the district.

81 local Kāpiti roads have been identified for the stage 2 speed limit review to see whether they merit a speed limit change, and 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 speed limit 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.
  • A speed limit review was requested for Marine Parade, Riverbank Road, Tasman Road (80 km/h section) and Waerenga Road in Ōtaki. These roads will be considered in a later review.
  • 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 the New Zealand Government's review of school speed limits.
