Speed limits on some state highways might be lowered in an effort to curb rising road fatalities, Stuff reveals. Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency is seeking feedback on the current speeds of eleven highways across Auckland and Northland. The feedback will help Waka Kotahi determine where speed limit changes could improve safety, and will help shape any new proposed speed limits which will then be followed by a formal consultation. Public engagement period will run from May 3 to June 14.
