Nelson Tasman Community Speed Limit Survey

We're collecting your thoughts and feedback on speed limits before we do a more formal review later in the year. Survey closes Friday 14 June.

This survey is now closed.

About the survey

Central 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 ensuring ‘safe and appropriate’ travel speeds.

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

Both Nelson City and Tasman District are starting work on reviewing the current speed limits. For speed limits to be effective, they need to be underpinned by community support and understanding. 

That’s why we want to hear from you.

Please take the time to complete this online survey. It’s your chance to tell us what speed limits you think are safe and appropriate on the different types of roads we have across our region. 

 

This feedback will help us as we review our speed limits. There will be a formal consultation process to follow if speed limit changes are proposed for specific roads.
