- Reduce speed limits to survivable levels recognising that many road users share the same space.
- Provide a more people focused street where families feel safer.
- Residential roads are becoming increasingly busy as traffic levels increase, and more people choose to walk and cycle.
- Research has shown that reducing speed in residential areas has many health and well-being benefits.
- Area-wide changes rather than individual streets as they are part of a larger road network.
Town Centres (including City Centre)
- High volumes of vulnerable road users.
- Reduce speed limits to survivable levels recognising that many users share the same space.
- Existing operating (actual) speeds are normally lower than posted speeds during peak periods due to the high volume of foot traffic.
- Creating public spaces that promote people’s health, happiness and well-being.
- Focus on high crash risk routes.
- Need to introduce safe and appropriate speeds across areas rather than individual roads.
- Making our key routes safer (no speed limits greater than 80km/h without a centre median separation).
