Speed Limits on
Tasman Roads Out for Consultation.
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

every 10 years, the Council has proposed to change the
current limits in some places to better reflect the speed at

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
The consultation period closes 25 March.
