Except for Te Puia Springs township, the outcome for the speed limit changes on the other sections of Gisborne to Te Puia Springs townships – was in line with the proposed speed limit changes, and the permanent speed limits outlined below will come into effect on Tuesday, 8 September 2020.
Following submissions on Te Puia Springs Township and further analysis of our technical data, we’ve decided to reconsider the proposed speed limit change on this section. We’re planning to re-consult with the Te Puia Springs community about a new proposed speed limit. We will provide further information about this in the coming months.
