Consultation on increased speed limit
An increased speed limit on the Waikato Expressway could be in operation by the end of this year.
New Zealand Transport Agency will be engaging road users and the community on the proposed new 110km/h limit for the Cambridge section of the Waikato Expressway.
NZTA’s Harry Wilson, said it’s important people have their say.
He said the road along with three others have been selected first because they are some of the best in New Zealand.
‘‘The speed limit will only be increased to 110km/h on roads which can support higher travel speeds without compromising safety.
‘‘The Cambridge section of the Waikato Expressway has been designed and will be maintained and operated to the necessary standards to safely support 110km/h travel speeds.’’
Any additional roads being considered for the 110km/h speed limit will also require consultation with the community.
Submissions close 5pm, Wednesday October 26, 2017. Other roads considered included the additional sections of the Waikato Expressway (SH1), Tauranga Eastern Link Toll Road (SH2).
