Media advisory - Waikato district invited to give feedback on proposed changes to speed limits

Wanted - your feedback on proposed amendments to the Waikato District Council Speed Limit Bylaw 2011. 

Council has received 16 proposed amendments to the current bylaw and will now undertake a 20-working day public consultation beginning Monday 24 February.

Detailed plans and maps showing the proposed changes to existing speed limits, and an online submission form, are available on Council’s website, www.waikatodistrict.govt.nz. Hard copy submission forms are also available at Council libraries and offices around the district.
