Speed limits

All roads under the Christchurch City Council’s jurisdiction have enforceable speed limits set by the Traffic and Parking Bylaw 2017. The Christchurch City Register of Speed Limits records these speed limits.

  • Speed limits on roads within the designated urban traffic areas are 50 km/h. These roads are not listed separately in the Speed Limit register [PDF, 612 KB]
  • Speed limits on roads within the designated urban traffic areas which have a speed limit other than 50 km/h are designated by the Council separately and are signposted and recorded in the Speed limit register [PDF, 612 KB] and below speed limit map.
  • Speed limits on roads outside the designated urban traffic areas are 100 km/h unless the Council has designated a different speed limit. 

For further information about the Christchurch City Register of Speed Limits, or to have a speed limit on a specific road reviewed, please contact the Council.
