Draft Land Trans­port Rule: Set­ting of Speed Lim­its [2017]

New Zealand Company Vehicle - - BRIEFS -

The NZ Trans­port Agency (the Trans­port Agency) is con­sult­ing, on be­half of the Min­is­ter of Trans­port, on the draft Land Trans­port Rule: Set­ting of Speed Lim­its [2017]. This Rule de­ter­mines how speed lim­its are set in New Zealand. The pro­posed Rule would re­voke and re­place Land Trans­port Rule: Set­ting of Speed Lim­its 2003. Sig­nif­i­cant changes pro­posed in­clude al­low­ing for a new max­i­mum speed of 110km/h on our very best roads, recog­nis­ing that some modern roads can be safely driven at this speed. These roads will need to meet cer­tain cri­te­ria, in­clud­ing at least two lanes in each di­rec­tion sep­a­rated by a me­dian bar­rier. The Trans­port Agency in­vites pub­lic feed­back on the pro­pos­als.
