Poll: Lower speed limits on the horizon for Pahīatua track

Maxine Jacobs Reporter from Manawatū Standard

Mōrena kiritata,

The Palmerston North City Council is proposing lower speed limits on the Pahīatua track and other roads throughout the city.

There were 37 crashed on the track between 2014 and 2018, and surveys show most people driving the route already slow to an average 72 kmh even with the 100kmh speed limit.

The council is considering bringing the speed down to 80kmh.

Proposals for speed reductions on the track and other roads the council is looking at for are out for public consultation until September 4.

Do you think the speed limit on the Pahīatua Track is too high?

Is that a teahouse on Stewart Island?

Mei Leng Wong Reporter from NZ Gardener & Get Growing

Why yes it is, and it's also a man cave, a shed, and a builder/engineer's retirement project. Little wonder Allan Jones' quirky build is a runner-up in the 2021 Resene Shed of the Year competition run by NZ Gardener.
