Local board input to development of Auckland Transport’s Interim Speed Management Plan

Resolution number GBI/2022/28

MOVED by Chairperson I Fordham, seconded by Member P O'Shea:  

That the Aotea / Great Barrier Local Board:

a)         provide the following feedback on the introduction of an interim Auckland Speed Management Plan:

                i)         Aotea / Great Barrier Island is an open speed area with roads that are shared, narrow and often unmarked

              ii)         The Local Board Plan 2020 has key initiatives to keep our shared roads safe and healthy with road improvements such as sealing, and installing traffic calming solutions

             iii)         Note consideration of an overall speed limit for the island rather than for individual areas

             iv)         Suggest the use of speed reduction signage for village areas, marae, schools and beaches

              v)         Note the island has limited enforcement officers which needs to be taken into account for any proposed changes.

b)         note that there is a number of speed management plans taking place currently which can lead to confusion for engagement with the community.

c)         note that current consultation is out for changes of speed limits around the Kawa and Motairehe marae only.

d)         request a workshop with Auckland Transport before wider public consultation to specifically work through local speed limits for the wider island and any potential specific locations of change.
