In 2015 Council reviewed the speed limits along the stretch of State Highway 2, known as the Te Puke Corridor.
100km/h – District Boundary
70km/h – 200m west of Collins Lane
50km/h – 130m west of Te Puke Quarry Rd
70km/h – 300m east of King St
100km/h – East end of Waiari Stream Bridge
70km/h – 100m east of Strang Rd
100km/h – 100m east of Kaituna River Bridge to the Paengaroa/TEL roundabout.
The stretch of road, no longer a state highway, had to be renamed.
Councillors unimously decided on 'Te Puke Highway' as the name for both sections of road either side of Jellicoe Street.
