Parking removal SH6 near Lowburn water sports park – consultation underway


NZ Transport Agency Waka Kotahi (NZTA) is asking for input to a proposal to make both sides of SH6 free of parking around the entrance to the Kiwi Water Park at Lowburn, near Cromwell. The area runs for 1.3 km.

The inflatables water park and people accessing Lake Dunstan have dedicated, safe parking on LINZ land nearby, so there is no need for on-highway parking.

“This is essential given SH6 has a 100km/hour upper speed limit so anyone pulling onto the highway is risking a serious injury crash or worse,” says NZTA’s Team Lead Safety Engineers Roy Johnston.

“Once we have received submissions and agreed on the best way forward, a bylaw could be set in accordance with the Land Transport Management Act 1998.”

Submissions can be emailed to:

Or posted to: The Senior Safety Engineer, NZTA, PO Box 5245, Dunedin 9058.

The deadline for input is Wednesday 3 April, 2024.
