The Rail and Maritime Trade Union (RMTU) has given notice of its intent to commence industrial action from Monday 26 February to Friday 16 March.

Auckland Transport and Transdev have developed a temporary timetable to minimise disruption and provide consistent rail services on these lines during this period.

Customers can expect Southern, Western and Eastern line weekday peak train services at 20-minute intervals, with inter-peak and off-peak services running as normal. Many trains on these services will run with six cars, which can hold 900 passengers, to help reduce impact.

Onehunga and Pukekohe weekday train services and weekend train services across all lines will remain on their usual timetable.

Ferry and bus services will operate as normal.

Speed limits bylaw Speed limits bylaw

The speed limits policy balances the interests of mobility and safety by ensuring speed limits are safe, appropriate and credible for the level of roadside development and the category of road for which they're set. They must also be nationally consistent.

How we review speed limits

Land Transport Rule: Setting of Speed Limits 2017 contains the process needed for reviewing a speed limit, which involves a rating system to determine the appropriate speed for any given road environment.

Most speed limits are up-to-date for compliance with the rule, so any changes are only expected to be necessary in locations where the road environment changes significantly, for example, in areas of high business or residential growth.

For speed limits on state highways or motorways, visit the NZ Transport Agency website.


Schedule of speed limits

The Schedule of Speed Limits lists the speed limits that were in force in Auckland, grouped alphabetically by road name for each level of speed limit, as of 27 June 2012.

This schedule will not be updated as changes are made to speed limits. Instead, changes to speed limits will be recorded in the separate Register of Speed Limits that Auckland Transport will maintain as required by the Land Transport Rule: Setting of Speed Limits 2017. It is this register that will be kept up to date as changes are made by Auckland Transport.
