CAW submission on Lowering the Speed Limit in Kelburn & Brooklyn
- Lowering speed limits reduces both frequency and severity of accidents, for all road users, including cyclists.
- In the selected areas, impact on journey times will be minimal, and may improve journey times for vehicles entering from side streets.
- The urban environment in these areas will be improved, encouraging people to walk or bicycle to local shops rather than use motor vehicles, and benefiting local businesses.
- We would advocate for extensions of the 30km/hr area: on Upland Road to the Glenmore Street bridge, making it safer for for students to cycle to Kelburn School, and providing making the narrow bend on Upland road safer for cyclists.
Oral submission will be Thursday 2 December 9.55am WCC Ctte Rm 1
