EO Report, August

Speed Limits Review 2020 

Hastings District Council is currently reviewing speed limits, either in their entirety or on sections of 70 roads in our district.

The review is being undertaken after Council reviewed numerous requests from the public to consider further amendments across other routes during previous reviews in 2018 and 2019. As well as these public requests, Council is also reviewing roads identified by the New Zealand Transport Agency where speed reductions could make a big difference in preventing deaths and serious injuries. The review also seeks to align Hastings with neighbouring councils’ speed limit change proposals, and account for road and land usage changes due to development.

Under National guidelines, new limits will be either 60, 80 or 100kph.

Information on the proposed changes can be found at My Voice, My Choice .

Submissions close 12.00pm, Tuesday 14th September 2020. The Association will be making a submission so please email any feedback, comments or thoughts on the changes to executiveofficer@hbfa.co.nz
