Council adopted the latest round of proposed amendments to the Speed Limit Bylaw 2011 bylaw at its meeting on 23 May 2022.
This means lower speed limits will be introduced to a number of roads throughout the district from July 2022.
Making the streets safer where we live was the main driver behind these speed limit reductions.
Feedback during consultation showed a majority of support for the proposed speeds and most were adopted.
A major change from this round of amendments is that all schools in the district, both rural and urban, will now have a variable reduced speed limit area of 40kmh between 8am-9am and 2.30pm-3.30pm.
Physical works to implement the new speed reductions are taking place over the next few months. Keep an eye out for any new speed signs in your area.
