Speed limit changes from July around the Waterview Tunnel

The NZ Transport Agency says changes to variable speed limits around the Waterview Tunnel will be introduced from July. The proposed changes on State Highways 20 and 16 will allow maximum speeds of 100km/h in certain driving conditions. “Following a comprehensive safety and operational review of the area and consultation with key partners and the public, we are planning a phased roll-out with the first of these changes occurring from July”, says the Transport Agency’s System Design Manager, Brett Gliddon. “The Transport Agency would like to thank the public for their feedback on the proposal to increase the variable speed limits on sections of SH16 and SH20 around the Waterview Tunnel.” Public feedback was open for a 4 week period with more than 3,000 responses provided during that time, with the significant majority in favour of increasing the maximum speed limit. The changes to increase the variable speed limit from 30–80km/h to 30-100km/h will be introduced in two phases
