District speed limit review
We are reviewing the speed limits of local roads throughout the district to ensure they are safe and appropriate. The review excludes State Highways as these are managed by the New Zealand Transport Agency.
For speed limits to be effective, they need to be underpinned by community support and understanding. That’s why we need to hear from you about what you think of our proposals.
A summary of the locations where the speed limits are proposed to change is available in our consultation flyer
We are also holding a community drop in day to discuss the proposed changes, come along at a time that suits: 17 February 2020, Council Chambers, 131 Havelock Street, Ashburton, 12-6 pm.
As well as the consultation flyer above, an interactive map
is available with the proposed speed limit changes highlighted, or see the individual maps and road descriptions below.
We are accepting feedback until 5 pm, Sunday 8 March, 2020. Please complete the form here to provide your feedback.
