TDC Review – Speed Limit Bylaw

Tasman District Council is reviewing its Speed Limit Bylaw. The first stage of this review is to invite you to have your say about speed limits on local roads in Tasman District.


Is there an issue with the speed on the road where you live? Are there other roads that you consider should have the speed limit reviewed?


Please send all your suggestions, comments or feedback through to me via email or post. These need to reach me by 4.00 pm, Friday 29 May 2015


All suggested speed limit changes will then be subject to a speed warrant process and assessment where Council staff use a national rule developed by the New Zealand Transport Agency. The rule is used to balance the interests of mobility and safety by ensuring the speed limit on a particular road is safe. The speed limit must also be appropriate and credible for the level of roadside development and the category of road for which it is set. Speed limits must also be nationally consistent.


The current speed limit bylaw and associated maps indicating speed limits on all roads within the District can be found on the Council website www.tasman.govt.nz/council/media-centre/public-notices/2015-speed-limit-review/


If you have any questions or need any further information in regard to this process please do not hesitate to contact me.
