Nelson City Council is inviting submissions from the community on a proposal to change the current 70km/h speed limit on Waimea Road to 50km/h.

This applies to a 1.3km section of road, from 240m south of Market Road and 200m north of the Beatson Road roundabout.

The reasons for this proposal are to provide:
  • improved road safety on this section of Waimea Road.
  • a workable speed environment for the proposed new intersection of Princes Drive with Waimea Road.
A copy of the full Statement of Proposal is available from the Council office in Trafalgar Street, the Nelson, Stoke and Tahunanui Libraries or online at

Submissions are invited until Friday 15 February 2019.
