Over the past two years the Transport Agency and Tasman District Council have been having conversations with local stakeholders including NZ Police, the Road Transport Association of New Zealand and Automobile Association about safe speed limits in the Tasman District. These conversations led to investigative work and wider community engagement about concerns with SH60 and adjoining roads.

Community engagement on the issue reached a peak in February this year with a flurry of submissions to the Tasman draft Regional Land Transport Plan, a majority of which related to SH60. Of these, most submitters recommended the speed limit on SH60 be lowered, especially the section between Three Brothers and Maisey Road.

Experts within the Transport Agency and the council reviewed the safe and appropriate speed for this route and held further conversations with key stakeholders in April, ahead of announcing their recommendation to lower speed limits and commencing this consultation phase.
