Local speed limits cut

Feedback is being sought on planned speed cuts that could see a 30km/h limit in Warkworth and Matakana town centres, as well as much lower speeds on many rural roads.

Auckland Transport’s (AT) Katoa, Ka Ora three-year speed management plan focuses on bringing speeds outside all schools to 30km/h at key times, but will also see limits on many rural Rodney roads that are currently 100km/h cut to 80, 60, 40 or even 30km/h.

The plan is the latest in a series of speed plans and changes that have been made, this time focusing on rural roads out to the west coast and around the Wellsford, Te Hana, Tomarata and Mangawhai areas. AT said in June implementation of the plan could cost between $40 million and $70 million over three years.
