Transport Agency proposes safety improvements for SH58

|

The NZ Transport Agency is seeking public input on a proposal to lower the speed limit from 100km/h to 80km/h along the section of State Highway 58 from State Highway 2 to Bradey Road.

NZTA’s Director of Regional Relationships Emma Speight says the proposal is part of a wider package of improvements designed to make SH58 safer.

“SH58 has accumulated one of the worst safety records in New Zealand and it’s a priority for the Agency to make significant safety improvements as soon as possible,” Ms Speight says.

“We expect a lower speed limit, along with other improvements like straightening dangerous curves, intersection improvements and installing a median barrier, will reduce the number of deaths and serious injuries by up to 65% over five years.”

“We’re also working with local councils to set safe speeds for the local roads connecting to this part of SH58. As part of this engagement, the Porirua City Council is consulting on its proposal to set a 60km/h speed limit for PCC roads that connect to SH58.”

The consultation will run from 20 March to 20 April 2018. Two open days will be held at the Pauatahanui School on:

  • Saturday, 24 March, 10am to noon
  • Tuesday, 27 March, 6.30 to 8.30pm
