Review of Speed Limits In and Around our Towns

The Waimakariri District Council are asking for feedback on proposals to reduce speed limits in and around our towns. This is to improve safety and ensure that speed limits are appropriate for the many users.

“The safety of people using our roads is one of Council’s top priorities”, says Council’s Road Safety Coordinator Kathy Graham. “Making sure speed limits are appropriate is one way to reduce the risk for everyone.”20210927 - Speed Car Driving

The review includes roads in and around Oxford, Cust, Kaiapoi, Ohoka, Rangiora, Woodend and Pegasus as well as some unsealed roads around Tuahiwi and Ashley.

“We want to hear what the community think of the proposed speed limit changes. Whether you drive a car, ride a motorbike, walk or cycle, it’s important we receive your feedback”, says Kathy.

After collecting feedback, staff will report to the Community Boards and the Council, who will make a final decision later this year.
