Setting of speed limits
We review speed limits across the district annually.
Speed limits on state highways are the responsibility of the New Zealand Transport Agency (NZTA) and are set nationally through Speed Limits New Zealand. (PDF 314KB)
We have to consult with NZTA, Police and the Automobile Association when reviewing speed limits. Consultation is also required before we make any change to the Speed Limits Bylaw (PDF 1.93MB). We typically do this by advertising in local newspapers and on this site.
