Review of Speed Limit Bylaw Consultation

As part of the Governments Safer Journeys Strategy, we are required to review speed limits in the Whangarei District.

We are doing this in a staged process, focussing on areas where the evidence indicates that changing the speed limit will have the greatest impact on reducing fatal and serious harm crashes and improving overall road safety.

We have taken an evidence-based approach to reviewing speed limits to match the proposed speed limit with the road environment; but would also like your feedback on our proposals before we make any decisions.

You can find our Statement of Proposal that sets out what speed limits we are currently proposing to change, by following the link below:
