Speed Review 2020

As part of the Governments' Road to Zero National Road Safety Strategy, we are required to review speed limits in the Kaipara District.

We are doing this in a staged process, focusing on areas where the evidence indicates that changing the speed limit will have the greatest impact on reducing fatal and serious harm crashes and improving overall road safety.

Mangawhai – Kaiwaka (including Hakaru) and Kaiwaka West ( including Oneriri Road and Oruawharu Road)

We are currently reviewing speed limits in the Mangawhai-Kaiwaka (Hakaru) and Kaiwaka West (Oneriri Road and Oruawharu Road) catchment area.  As part of the review, we are seeking community feedback on the Proposed Speed Limits before we make any final decisions.

The submission period opens on 29th October and closes at 5pm on 18th December 2020

Drop-in information sessions will be held at the following locations (subject to Covid-19 health restrictions):

  • 12th November at the Hakaru Hall on Settlement Road between 12noon and 2pm
  • 17th November at the Mangawhai Senior Citizens Hall – Fagan Place – between 4pm and 6pm
  • 18th November at Kaiwaka Memorial Hall between 4pm and 6pm
  • 19th November at Mangawhai Library Hall between 4pm and 6pm
