On December 18, Waka Kotahi New Zealand Transport Agency (NZTA) dropped the speed limits along SH6 between Nelson and Blenheim.
Police say the majority of road users were adhering to the new limits, with an educational approach had been taken in monitoring driver behaviour, while motorists have been largely accepting of the changes.
What has been your experience of the speed limit changes? Has it resulted in noticeably slower travel times or different driver behaviour?
Nelson City Council's backing for a plan to build a $44 million library in the riverside precinct, next door to the current library, could see council paying "hundreds of millions of dollars" to defend areas vulnerable to flooding across the city, climate campaigners fear. The council could face legal challenges if it put public infrastructure on a site at risk from sea level rise and river flooding, and chose not to protect people's assets across the rest of the city, they say. Should council hold off on the decision until community engagement on how to adapt to flood risks citywide is completed, and the Climate Change Adaptation Act is passed?
