The Roading Manager provided a report and presented the Statement of Proposal on the Speed Limit Bylaw for the Ward Committee’s consideration. The Council is proposing the various changes set out in the Speed Limit Bylaw SoP.

The members were invited to review the document and determine if they wished to make a submission on any changes to the bylaw during the consultation period. Maps showing the current speed limits within the roading network in each township of the Plains Ward were presented.


Kerepehi Township

A member suggested that the 50km speed limit entering Kerepehi Town Road be moved further out to provide earlier warning to traffic to reduce speed.

Staff advised that copies of the bylaw would be sent out to these representatives.
