Speed Limit survey – please share your thoughts

14/05/2019 12:04pm

​Central Government has placed a focus on reducing crashes on our roads, not only by investing in road safety improvements, but also ensuring ‘safe and appropriate’ travel speeds.

Of course, the ‘safe and appropriate’ speed will vary for different types of roads, depending on their main use and characteristics.

Both Nelson City and Tasman District are starting work on reviewing the current speed limits that are in place.

For speed limits to be effective, they need to be underpinned by community support and understanding.

That’s why we want to hear from you. Please take the time to complete an online survey before 14 June 2019. It’s your chance to tell us what speed limits you think are safe and appropriate on our different road types.

This feedback will help us as we review our speed limits. There will be a formal consultation process to follow if speed limit changes are proposed for specific roads.

If you would prefer to complete a paper copy of the survey, they are available at the following locations and can be returned there once completed.

  • Nelson City Council Customer Service Centre, 110 Trafalgar Street, Nelson.
  • Elma Turner Library, 27 Halifax Street, Nelson.
  • Nightingale Library Memorial, 2 Beach Road, Tahunanui.
  • Stoke Library, 35 Putaitai Street, Stoke.
