HAVE YOUR SAY: SPEED LIMIT CHANGES - PEGASUS BOULEVARD AND SCHOOL AND WIDER DISTRICT


The Waimakariri District Council is seeking feedback on the Speed Management Plan 2023/27 which will have an impact on roads in our district.


Pegasus: There are two areas of change for Pegasus - speed limit changes around the school and a lowering of the speed limit at:

  • Pegasus Boulevard, between State Highway One and Infinity Drive (70 km/h to 60 km/h to align with Waka Kotahi’s State Highway One proposed speed limit change)

Other Key Intersections and Other Proposed Changes in the district:

  • Pegasus Boulevard, between State Highway One and Infinity Drive (70 km/h to 60 km/h to align with Waka Kotahi’s State Highway One proposed speed limit change)

  • Beach Road, from 80 m east of Tuhoe Avenue to 690 m east of Tuhoe Avenue (70 km/h to 50 km/h) to coincide with extending development.

  • Beach Road, 690 m east of Tuhoe Avenue to 200 m west of Dunns Avenue (100 km/h to 80 km/h)

  • Ferry Road (north), Beach Road to end of formed road (100 km/h to 60 km/h)

  • Ferry Road (south), Beach Road to end of formed road (100 km/h to 60 km/h)

  • Ashley Gorge Road (German Road intersection speed zone), from 150 m east of the German Road intersection to 150 m west of the German Road intersection (100 km/h to 60 km/h as a variable speed limit)

  • Oxford Road (Tram Road intersection speed zone), from 150 m east of the Tram Road intersection to 150 m west of the Tram Road intersection (100 km/h to 60 km/h as a variable speed limit)

  • Tram Road (Two Chain Road intersection speed zone) – 150 m east of the Two Chain Road intersection to 150 m west of the Two Chain Road intersection (100 km/h to 60 km/h as a variable speed limit)

  • Tram Road (Earlys Road intersection) – 150 m east of the Earlys Road intersection to 150 m west of the Earlys Road intersection (100 km/h to 60 km/h as a variable speed limit))


Speed Limits at schools

We are proposing a mix of permanent speed limit signage at some school locations and variable speed limit signs outside those schools on roads with high volumes of traffic. Variable speed limit signs at schools are active between specific hours at the beginning and end of school days only. These temporary speed limit reductions are intended to slow traffic passing through school zones when students are more likely to be in and around the road.


Head to the council website for all the information and read about the changes.
