Speed limit on North Canterbury's notorious Tram Rd overbridge under review

Nicole Mathewson Reporter from Northern Outlook

The review follows public concern about the Tram Rd overbridge – the site of about 60 crashes since 2000, including a two-car smash in which Kayla Dudley feared she had killed someone in September.

Council roading and transport manager Joanne McBride said the speed review aligned with several upcoming major changes to roads in the area, including new traffic lights at Tram Rd, the creation of a shared path along Main North Rd, and upgrades to SH1.

If approved, the speed limit on Main North Rd, Tram Rd, Doubledays Rd and several side streets would be dropped to 60kmh. Read more here.
