Interim State Highway Speed Management Plan

In March 2024, the Minister of Transport confirmed that a new Land Transport Rule for setting speed limits will be released for public consultation in the coming months and signed by the end of the year.

In anticipation of the new Rule, we have paused work on our speed management plans.

As we receive more information on the Rule, we will work through what it means for our speed management activity, including the proposals within the Interim State Highway Speed Management Plan. We will provide updates later this year, after decisions are made.

Until the new Rule comes into force, we will continue to set and review speed limits as required under the current Setting of Speed Limits 2022 Rule, such as for changes to infrastructure, temporary speed limits expiring or new roads opening.
