Brooklyn residents polled on speed limit drop

BROOKLYN’S new 30km/h speed limit will need time before visible changes are seen.

“It’s too soon to tell,” says Wellington City Council safe & sustainable transport manager Paul Barker.

Introduced in February, the speed reduction from 50km/h still needs time before new statistics can be recorded and the full effect analysed, he says.

The council recently polled 112 Brooklyn residents and retailers by letterbox drop asking if the speed reduction has improved road safety in the area.

More than half of respondents saw a change, while 32% said they saw no difference at all.

Mr Barker says the community feels the change has made a difference, according to the data, but remains clear that it’s still too early to judge its effectiveness.
