Safer Speed Area

Protecting the safety of Hamilton neighbourhoods

In the 2011/12 financial year we introduced eight Safer Speed Areas in conjunction with the NZ Transport Agency and the Road Safety Trust as a national demonstration project.

Overall the Safer Speed Areas have performed well, resulting in a reduction in either the volume of traffic and/or the speed of vehicles.

Also as part of our monitoring we asked residents of those areas for their perceptions of the Safer Speed Area.

The complete results of the monitoring work that we have undertaken can be found in the Progress and Monitoring report. Click here to download the pdf (PDF, 1.27MB).
