Signs could slow it down around schools
Feedback is being sought by Hamilton City Council on proposed changes to improve safety on Hamilton streets.
The changes include proposals for variable or permanent speed limits of 40kmh outside some schools.
Hamilton City Council’s transport manager Jason Harrison said the council was seeking feedback on proposed changes in several streets to better understand what the local community thinks about their local roading network.
‘‘We have identified some changes we can make on our roads that will better reflect this changing environment and we’d like people to give their views,’’ he said.
Residents have until June 9 to submit their feedback. A Statement of Proposal will be presented to the Hamilton City Council Growth and Infrastructure Committee on August 1.
Residents can submit their views by visiting www.hamilton.govt.nz/ RoadRisk or email@example.com. email
