Speed changes on Brougham Street – Have your say

The way we manage speeds in New Zealand is changing with a new Land Transport Rule: Setting of Speed Limits 2022, coming into effect in May this year. The new rule will see speed changes considered with a whole-of-network approach rather than road by road. For some roads like Brougham Street however, a speed review was already underway, so the process is being incorporated into an overarching public consultation.

The proposal for Canterbury features speed limit changes outside most schools on our highway network, and Addington Te Kura Taumatua on Brougham Street is one of these. You’ll also see reduced speed limits proposed in the Brougham Street area to align with the upgrades that are coming. 

You can find information on this consultation and find out how to have your say below.



Consultation on speed

Consultation on the draft Interim State Highway Speed Management Plan runs until Monday 12 December.

It's based on analysis of roads and surrounding environments and on conversations with the community. Rural intersection ‘hot spots’ and locations where with increased housing and development are targeted. The plan also includes proposed speed limit changes to most schools on our highway network, which is a key action of the Tackling Unsafe Speeds programme to transition to safer speed limits around schools.



Have your say

The project web page includes a summary with links to all the proposed speed limit changes around the country which have quick view maps for each region.

For detailed information, view the Draft Interim State Highway Speed Management Plan and the new Land Transport Rule: Setting of Speed Limits 2022.

Consultation closes at 5pm on Monday 12 December 2022.
