All roads under the Christchurch City Council’s jurisdiction have enforceable speed limits set by the Traffic and Parking Bylaw 2017. The Christchurch City Register of Speed Limits records these speed limits.
This Bylaw allows the Christchurch City Council to set or change the enforceable speed limits on roads under its jurisdiction. It does not however allow the Council to set or change the enforceable speed limits on NZ Transport Agency (State Highways) roads or other privately owned roads within the Councils boundary.
The Council can formally resolve built up areas as Designated Urban Traffic Areas.
The review process for speed limits within the Christchurch City boundary is carried out regularly (approximately every 24 months).
For further information about the Christchurch City Register of Speed Limits, or to have a speed limit on a specific road reviewed, please contact the Council.
That for the purposes of consultation, "any local community" shall be those persons or organisations referred to in paragraph 12 below:
12. The term "Any Local Community" is not defined for the purposes of Section 7.1(2)(c) of the Rule. However, in respect of the roads referred to below it is considered that the appropriate persons to consult are the occupiers of those properties which adjoin those parts of the roads upon which it is proposed that the speed limits be changed and each Community Board in respect of whose area the roads lie.
