Project information

We are proposing several speed limit reductions in the Harewood and Yaldhurst areas. The proposed speed limit changes take into account safe and appropriate speeds in accordance with the NZTA approved guides to speed management. They aim to address the changing nature of post-quake north west Christchurch with its recent and proposed residential developments.

 The changes seek to mitigate the effects of increased traffic flows along previously rural roads and reduce the risk and severity of accidents to the residents and users of these roads.

Setting speed limits

 The Christchurch City Council's Traffic and Parking Bylaw 2017 allows Council to set and change speed limits on roads within Christchurch in accordance with the Land Transport Rule: Setting of Speed Limits 2017.
