Kapiro Road: Time to reduce the speed limit?

Updated: Jul 11, 2022

When you first drive along Kapiro road the current speed limit may not seem unreasonable. However, there are a number of factors which make 100km/h dangerous including:

  • Businesses e.g., kitchen manufacturing, garden centre, kiwifruit pack house, grading equipment, nurseries.

  • Child care facilities – “Nurture by Nature” (who have raised their concerns with The Council).

  • Residential houses with a single driveway leading to one or more houses.

  • Residential roads such as; Equestrian Drive, Pukeko Lane, River Drive Road.

  • Feeder Roads - Purerua and Redcliffs Roads which link now increasingly populous areas.
