SH6 Blenheim to Nelson Speed Limit Review Consultation

The NZ Transport Agency is consulting under clause 2.5 of the Land Transport Rule: Setting of Speed Limits 2017 on permanent speed limits for State Highway 6 (SH6) between Blenheim and Nelson.

We are proposing a range of speeds along this route:


There are numerous communities and schools on SH6 it’s popular with cyclists, busy with freight and commuters, and there are school children and others crossing the road in 100km/h environments.

In the 10 years between 2009 and 2018, 20 people lost their lives and 92 were seriously injured in crashes on this road.

In recent months, we’ve been speaking with the community and local businesses, and other key organisations about how we can improve safety.

We are investigating safety improvements, but one of the best things we can do right now to prevent people from dying or being seriously injured is reduce speed limits, so they are safe and right for the road.

Consultation documentation, a map of the route showing the proposed changes and more information is available at www.nzta.govt/speedreviews

The consultation period runs from 15 October to 12 November 2019 (the consultation form is included in the attached information pack).    

Yours sincerely,

Jim Harland

Director Regional Relationships South Island
