Kāpiti Coast District Council has confirmed new speed limits for 40 sections of local
roads in Kapiti, that will be effective from 13 August.
The full list of roads with the new speed limits can be found on the KCDC website.
It includes Maungakotukutuku Road in Paekakariki and Jacks Bush Road in Waikanae reducing from 100 km per hour to 60.
The changes come info force following consultation in April and May this year on
Stage 1 of a district wide review.
Council also took into account new national rules and guidelines for speed limits
administered by the NZ Transport Agency.
Harry Wilson, NZ Transport Agency Director, Safety and Environment commended
the Council on its review.
He says KCDC has done a great job applying the Speed Management Guide to
achieve speed limits that reflect the form and function of their road network and
importantly, make it safer for all road users.
