Drivers will need to slow down on several Rangiora and Woodend area roads next week when new speed limits come into effect.
Reduced speed limits of 50km/h and 80km/h will be in place from Monday 28 January 2019.
Waimakariri District Council Road Safety Co-ordinator Kathy Graham says the increases in traffic, housing development and the addition of the cycle path were all factors when considering lower speeds for the area. There has also been strong community support for lower speeds.
“What once was a very rural area has changed and consequently so have the risks for road users,” Kathy says. “Lower speeds are one way we can help reduce that risk.”
Police Sergeant Rene Pabst deals daily with road users who either make poor choices or simply make mistakes when driving, often with serious consequences.
“If you have to brake suddenly, take evasive action or have a crash, the speed you are travelling at determines the outcome,” Rene says. Regardless of what causes a crash, speed always plays a part and can be the difference between someone walking away from a crash or not.”
Police will be paying attention to the area when the new speed limits come into effect on Monday 28 January.
The following speed limits will change:
