4.2       Speeds on Factory Road, Belfast - Brett Shaw

Brett Shaw presented his concerns regarding the speed of traffic on Factory Road, Belfast to the Board.

Mr Shaw informed the Board that the speed limit on Factory Road was 60 kilometres per hour, which he felt was too fast for safety in what is primarily a residential area. He also advised that motorists were speeding, sometimes as much as 20 kilometres per hour above the current speed limit, and asked that the Board look at options to deter this behaviour.

Mr Shaw was very concerned about the safety aspects of motorists exceeding the speed limit as there are residences with children and pets on Factory Road.

After questions from members, the Chairperson thanked Mr Shaw for his presentation.

The Board decided to request that staff:

 a)       review the speed limit currently in operation on Factory Road and the nearby side streets in Belfast to determine whether the 60 kilometres per hour was still appropriate given the growth of residential housing in this formerly rural area

b)        conduct speed and traffic counts on Factory Road to ascertain speeding issues and traffic volumes, and

c)         review signage

and that  the information be provided in a report to the Board detailing the findings and providing options for remediation.

The Board also requested that staff contact the New Zealand Police to provide a presence on Factory Road for enforcement purposes.
