Safer speeds bylaw consultation opens tomorrow

Auckland Transport’s consultation on its draft Speed Limit Bylaw closes this Sunday 31 March.

Chief Executive Shane Ellison says the amount of feedback received so far is impressive.

“Slower speeds are definitely something that Aucklanders care about and have strong views on, and we’re very pleased with the amount of feedback we’ve received so far.

“You still have a few days to submit feedback and I encourage you to have your say. This is one of the most important consultations AT is holding this year and we want to hear from Aucklanders.”

AT is proposing to lower speed limits on approximately 700km of Auckland’s roads.

90 per cent of the roads are in rural areas, where speeds are proposed to reduce from 100km/h to 80km/h or 60km/h.

In the city centre and some town centres, speed limits are proposed to be lowered to 30km/h to keep people walking, cycling and riding scooters safely.
