Locals know local roads
Locals know local roads and we'd like to ensure that changes we think will improve safety make sense and are consistent with the way we use our roads for all our activities, such as driving, riding a bike, walking and more.
Road safety and speed management
Want to know more about speed management? Read our Frequently Asked Questions on Road Risk.
There are nine sites around the city that we think need some speed management changes to improve road safety. We've recently taken community feedback on these sites and this will now be collated and used to inform a Statement of Proposal which will be presented to the Hamilton City Council Growth and Infrastructure Committee on 1 August 2017.
|Site 1: Kimbrae Dr –
outside Rototuna Junior and Senior High Schools||Proposed 40km/h
variable speed limit outside the schools to be operated at the start and end of
the school day.|
|Site 2: North City
Road & Borman Rd||Change temporary
50km/h to a permanent 50km/h for the section of North City Rd between Borman Rd
to just north of Bourn Brook Ave. Extend the current 40km/h variable speed
limit area to North City Rd to include area outside Hamilton Christian School
and further along the eastern end of Borman Rd.|
|Site 3: Borman Rd and
Hare Puke Dr||Proposed 40km/h
variable speed limit outside the site of future Sylvester School.|
|Site 4: Endeavour Ave||Proposed permanent
40km/h speed limit outside Endeavour School.|
|Site 5: Te Kowhai Rd East||Proposed 50km/h speed
limit to have one consistent speed limit along Te Kowhai Rd East.|
|Site 6: Rotokauri Rd||Proposed speed limit
changes to incorporate future roundabout and for future roads.|
|Site 7: Knox St||Change speed limit to
30km/h to support future angle parking construction.|
|Site 8: Wairere Dr||Moving the start of
the 80km/h north of the Ruakura Rd intersection to be level with the new
signage north of the Mitre 10 “on ramp”.|
|Site 9: Masters Ave||Proposed to provide
authority to Hillcrest High School to control existing 40km/h variable speed
limit which will extend hours of operation.|
