Speed Limits on Tasman Roads Out for Consultation

20 February 2013
Media Release
Speed Limits on Tasman Roads Out for Consultation.

The speed limits on Tasman’s roads are the subject of consultation for the next six weeks.

Approved in 2004, the current bylaw covers the speed limits on roads administered by the Council as opposed to the state highways managed by NZ Transport Agency. As part of the review, which must occur every 10 years, the Council has proposed to change the current limits in some places to better reflect the speed at which motorists travel.

Generally, this has led to the majority of proposed changes aimed at lowering limits with a few increases. This process of setting limits is consistent with the Safe System approach which underpins the national focus on reducing fatal and severe crashes.

Public consultation on the proposed speed limit bylaw opens on 23 February with the Draft bylaw, Statement of Proposal and Summary of information available on the Council website www.tasman.govt.nz, service centres and libraries.

The consultation period closes 25 March.

ENDS
