Between April 3 2017 – May 3 2017 the NZ Transport Agency consulted on changes to speed limits on the Picton to Christchurch alternate state highway route (state highways 63, 6, 65 and 7).
Consultation also included a proposal to lower the speed limit on a section of the Lower Buller Gorge that links to the alternate route. This road is not included in the current emergency rule.
Decisions on changes to speed limits on the Picton to Christchurch alternate state highway route are expected to be announced mid-June 2017.
