Pursuant to section 7 (Emergency speed limits) of the Land Transport Rule: Setting of Speed Limits 2017, Wellington City Council hereby advises that an emergency speed limit has been set as described in clauses 1 to 4 and in the location(s) detailed in the Schedule of this notice.
This notice is the Wellington City Council—Miramar Peninsula Emergency Speed Limit.
This speed limit came into force on and from 14 May 2020.
This speed limit expires on 13 May 2021 unless revoked prior to 13 May 2021.
The purpose of this speed limit is to manage speeds on sections of the Miramar Peninsula roads between Shelly Bay and Karaka Bay. Wellington City Council as the road controlling authority has identified there is a risk of danger to people on these roads due to the COVID-19 epidemic.
Note:A greater number of pedestrians are using these roads since the COVID-19 restrictions have been introduced and when pedestrians obey the government guidelines in maintaining a two metre physical separation, pedestrians have been required to step onto the road where motor vehicles and cyclists are travelling. In many cases the footpaths are narrow, intermittent or non-existent in places along the roads identified for the emergency speed limit.
