New Speed Limits for SH30 East Rotoiti

19 July 2023

New Speed Limits for SH30 East Rotoiti

We are pleased to FINALLY advise that Waka Kotahi announced on the 19th July that the new speed limits for SH30 will start taking effect from Monday the 14th August. It has been a long journey!

Lower speeds will be implemented through more built up areas like East Rotoiti following wide spread community support.

Due to the SH30 corridor being nearly 80km long it will take 2-3 weeks, weather permitting, to install approximately 200 new signs. Once the new sign is in place, that is the legal and enforceable speed limit.
