Consultation has concluded.

We'll update this page when a final decision has been made.

As part of the consent conditions under the Tupua Horo Nuku Eastern Bays shared path project, Hutt City Council is required to undertake a speed and safety review on Marine Drive.

Further to this the Government’s road safety strategy, 'Road to Zero – Te Ara Ki Ti Ora’, which aims to reduce deaths and serious injuries on New Zealand roads to Zero, also requires all councils to conduct a speed review programme. The Eastern Bays has been identified as a priority for speed management due to safety concerns.

The review has been completed and Hutt City Council is now consulting with the community on the proposed changes, which include a speed limit reduction from 70km/h to 50km/h between Whiorau Lowry Bay and Sunshine Bay as well as the installation of three new raised pedestrian crossings near bus shelters along Marine Drive.

We need to hear from the community to know if there are other factors we should consider when making a final decision on the proposed speed limit changes, and planned locations for the new pedestrian crossings.

If you have any feedback, please let us know using one of the below methods:

Consultation ends 5pm 20 June 2022.
