Community Boards to consider Marshland Rd speed limit

The Waipapa/Papanui-Innes Community Board will meet jointly with the Waitai/Coastal-Burwood Community Board this Friday 21 August at 10:30am in the Papanui boardroom. There is one main item on the agenda: a recommendation that that Council changes the 70km/h speed limit on Marshland Road to 60km/h. This is a follow-up to changes made to speed limits in the area in 2019, at which time a section of Marshland Road was left unchanged pending further information from staff. The advice from staff is that 60km/h is a safe speed for the road as it is, and that it is not viable to change the road design to make it compatible with the current speed limit. The meeting is open for the public to attend, and the full agenda can be found at the link below:
