Safer Speeds Consultation in Hataitai

Hataitai Shopping Centre

Hataitai Shopping Centre

Wellington City Council would like your views on its proposal to reduce the speed limit in the Hataitai shopping area and surrounding streets from 50km/h to 30km/h.

This proposal to reduce vehicle speeds will make Hataitai's streets safer and more pleasant for all road users.

There will be little effect on motorists' travel times, as the average speed in this area is already close to 30km/h.

From 2007 - 2011, a total of 25 crashes were reported in this area, two of which resulted in injuries to pedestrians. Studies show that reducing vehicle speeds significantly reduces the number and severity of injuries.

The Council has reduced the speed limit in 10 other shopping centres including Miramar, Seatoun, Strathmore Park and Kilbirnie.
