Wellington CBD speed limit to drop

From Morning Report, 6:41 am on 12 June 2020

The Wellington City Council is cutting the speed limit on the vast majority of the CBD's streets from 50km/h to 30km/h.

It's part of a first wave of measures in the multi-billion dollar overhaul of transport in the city called Let's Get Wellington Moving.

However, the main arterial routes will stay at 50km/h an hour, including Taranaki and Vivian Streets, Kent and Cambridge Terrace and Jervois Quay.

It's estimated 64 percent of Wellingtonians support the change, and these people in downtown Wellington agree.
