Safe speeds around schools Safe speeds around schools

During Phase 2 of Safe Speeds consultation in 2021, Auckland Transport proposed safe speed limits around 57 Auckland schools. We have taken all feedback into consideration and the Board of Directors of Auckland Transport (AT) has amended the Speed Limits Bylaw 2019.

New safe speed limits

From 30 June to 28 July 2022, a safe speed limit of 30km/h will be implemented around schools.

Why are these changes needed?

  • Setting safe speed limits outside and surrounding schools improves children’s safety.  If parents believe their children are safe on the way to school, they will allow them to walk and cycle to school more often.
  • Slower and safe speeds deliver many benefits to Auckland communities including: healthier environments, thriving town centres, safe streets for walking and biking, improved air quality, and lower carbon emissions.  
  • The internationally accepted speed to greatly reduce the chances of a pedestrian being killed or seriously injured is 30km/h.

What happens next? 

New speed limit signs will be installed during May and June and will be uncovered between 30 June – 28 July. The 30km/h school zone speed will be legally enforceable by NZ Police.
