Marshland Road now 60km/h

The speed limit on Marshland Road north of Prestons Road is now 60km/h. This follows changes 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 was 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 previous 70km/h speed limit. The Council approved this change last month, in line with the recommendation from a Joint Meeting of the Coastal-Burwood and Papanui-Innes Community Boards.
