We are reviewing speed limits on SH23, SH31 and SH39 in the west Waikato. We have finished the engagement phase (it ran from 26 October – 16 November 2020) and thank you to everyone who provided feedback and attended one of the community sessions held in Pirongia, Otorohanga, Kawhia, Whatawhata and Raglan.
We have analysed the information we have received via email, via the Social Pinpoint page and from the community sessions.
The link to our summary of the feedback received is below. We are using these insights along with the technical analysis to finalise our recommendation for what the safe and appropriate speeds should be for this road. The next step will be to formally consult on our recommendations. It is expected that the announcement of the consultation dates will be made shortly.
The consultation will give locals, and others who are interested and affected an opportunity to let us know if there are any other factors that we should consider when making our decision on the safe and appropriate speeds.
