asked residents whether speed limits should be lowered on Rangiora’s Kippenberger
Avenue, Northbrook Road, Rangiora-Woodend Road, Lehmans Road and River Road.

speed limit signage is now in place.
speed limit changes have been made in light of a changing landscape in Mandeville.
It was timely to review speed limits with large block rural areas now being overtaken
by smaller block rural/residential sections. This has brought about an increase
in population resulting in higher traffic volumes. There were also some
inconsistencies in speed limits in a number of residential cul-de-sacs and the
speed limit review gave residents an opportunity to let Council know what they
wanted to see in these areas.
Following adoption of the new speed limit proposals by Council at its August meeting, Kippenberger
Avenue, from Watkins Drive to Devlin Avenue and Northbrook Road from Papawai
Drive to east of Goodwin Street have been reduced to 50km/h, Kippenberger
Avenue from the 50km/h change point to 500m east of Golf Links Road, Lehmans
Road from Oxford Road to River Road, and River Road from Lehmans Road to West
Belt are reduced from 100km/h to 80km/h.
And for Mandeville, new
speed limits of 80km/h are in place on Wards Road, from Bradleys Road to the
boundary of the Millfield Subdivision, Dawsons Road, from Wards Road for 800
metres and Bradleys Road, from Tram Road to 400 metres north of Modena Place
and all cul-de-sacs in the area have been lowered to 50km/h for consistency.
The below maps outline the speed limit proposals which have now been adopted and are operational.
