During October and November 2019, we undertook public consultation on this speed review and asked the public if there were any other factors we needed to consider regarding the proposed speed limit change.
During August and September 2019, we asked the public for feedback on what is important to the community when reviewing the speed limit along State Highway 8 (SH8) through Tekapo and also Burkes Pass.
We used the feedback provided and technical information gathered to propose a new speed limit for Burkes Pass and formally consulted on this proposal.
The recommendation for Tekapo is still being worked through.
Feedback has now closed.
