The Government has placed a focus on reducing serious injuries and deaths associated with crashes on our roads, not only by investing in road safety improvements but also by ensuring ‘safe and appropriate’ travel speeds.

The ‘safe and appropriate’ speed will vary for different types of roads, depending on their main use and characteristics.

The Nelson City and Tasman District councils are reviewing the current speed limits in place across our region.

For speed limits to be effective, they need to be underpinned by community support and understanding – so we need your feedback.

Fill in the survey

An online survey is open now until Friday 14 June 2019. This is your chance to let us know the speeds you think are safe and appropriate on our different road types.

Paper copies are available at Tasman District Council offices and libraries.
