We have received advice from Waka Kotahi that since the Engagement report in September, their safety engineers have considered the feedback received and carried out the technical assessment needed to determine the safe and appropriate speeds along the SH30 corridor: what they may be and where they may change from one speed to another.
Once the proposal is finalised, it must be formally approved internally. The team have received approval to proceed to public consultation.
Public consultation is where Waka Kotahi present any proposed speed limits. This consultation period will be 4 weeks and is planned for January-February.
Detailed design (including the nitty gritty, such as foundation details of signposts) will proceed in parallel.
Waka Kotahi are finalising the collateral (such as maps) and will share these when they are available (approx mid January 22).
We look forward to reducing the increasing number of serious accidents on SH30 and safer roads for our community.
LRCA will keep you updated here.
