The second round of speed limit amendments have been adopted by Waikato District Council under guidance from NZ Transport Agency’s Speed Management Guide.

The 2018 Amendments to the Waikato District Council Speed Limit Bylaw 2011 focuses on high risk rural roads and roads affected by rapid growth, mainly around the Ngaruawahia, Tamahere, Pokeno, Tuakau, Horotiu, Horsham Downs and Te Kowhai areas.

The majority of submitters supported the proposed lowering of speed limits on roads proposed for a speed limit reduction.

Lowering speed limits is just one tool used to make our roads safer – other tools include  significant investment in capital road safety improvements, changes to intersection controls, street lighting, road marking and signage as well as driver education programmes.

Speed limit signs will be adjusted and the new speed limits will come into force once that is completed, estimated to be late April 2019.

A list of roads with speed limit amendments can be found below.
