Speed limit for Napier-Taupō highway described as 'naive'

A proposed speed limit for the notorious Napier-Taupō highway is 'naive' according to racing driver Greg Murphy.
On Monday, Waka Kotahi announced it would be consulting and seeking feedback from members of the public on a proposed speed limit between Rangitaiki and Esk Valley on SH5, which would reduce from 100kmh to 80kmh. It was also asking for consultation on speed limits across Hawke’s Bay’s SH51.
A blown-out tyre and two windscreen replacements are few of many experiences V8 super car driver Greg Murphy​ has encountered on the Napier-Taupō Rd (State Highway 5).
But Murphy still believes Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency’s (NZTA) proposed new speed limits for the notorious highway are about as useful as an “ambulance at the bottom of a cliff.”
Lack of training, poor decision-making, and driving experience were reasons for why crashes occurred on SH5, Murphy said.
