New speed signs

The Northland Age - - Local News -

Hi-tech elec­tronic speed signs are to be in­stalled at the Man­ga­pai Rd/State High­way 1 in­ter­sec­tion at Oak­leigh, south of Whanga¯rei, and at the Shoe­maker Rd/SH1 in­ter­sec­tion at Waipu. When a ve­hi­cle en­ters the In­ter­sec­tion Speed Zone to cross or turn on to or off the high­way, the signs will tem­po­rar­ily re­duce the le­gal speed limit on the high­way from 100km/h to 60km/h. NZTA act­ing di­rec­tor of safety and en­vi­ron­ment, Lisa Rossiter, said in­ter­sec­tion speed zones were a sim­ple, rel­a­tively quick safety im­prove­ment that had re­duced crash rates in New Zealand and overseas.
