Consultation status: closed 9 February 2017
We are proposing the following:
- Change the speed limit from 50 km/hr to 30 km/hr on the area known as the Wynyard Quarter and Viaduct Harbour, specifically on the roads shown on the attached drawing.
- Install a flush median on Hamer Street and parking improvements on Brigham Street to make the roads more appropriate for a 30 km/hr speed environment.
Why the changes are required
Wynyard Quarter is currently undergoing a significant redevelopment into a mixed residential and commercial area that attracts many visitors, especially pedestrians and cyclists. The proposed speed limit of 30km/hr will make the environment safer, and will also formalise the temporary speed limit for the sites in the Wynyard Quarter currently being redeveloped.
The proposed layout on Hamer Street and Brigham Street aims to create a lower speed environment in line with the proposed 30 km/hr speed limit.
