The next step is for the Waipuna/Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton Community Board to consider the staff report before making their recommendation to the Council who will have the final decision. 

What we’re doing

We are making a change on Chalmers Street so it is safer to get around Hornby Mall.

Reducing the existing 50 km/h speed limit to 30 km/h will make it safer for all pedestrian, vehicle and bus interactions.

What we're asking

Is there anything we need to know before carrying out these changes?
