The Waikato Expressway near Cambridge
New Zealand is set to get its first 110kmh roads with speed limits going up on two North Island highways from mid-December.
NZ Transport Agency confirmed on Friday that speed limits on the Tauranga Eastern Link Toll Road (SH2) and the Cambridge section of the Waikato Expressway (SH1) would be 110kmh.
On the Tauranga Eastern Link the 110kmh speed limit will run between the Paengaroa roundabout and the Domain Road interchange.
On the Waikato Expressway it will be between the Cambridge Southern and Tamahere interchanges.
“Both roads were selected for the new limit because they are two of the safest roads in New Zealand, with safety features such as median-barriers, no crossing roads, no tight curves and two lanes in each direction, which significantly reduces the risk of serious collisions occurring,” Director of Safety and Environment Harry Wilson said.
“Both the Tauranga Eastern Link Toll Road and the Cambridge section of the Waikato Expressway have been designed and will be maintained and operated to the necessary standards to safely support 110kmh travel speeds,” he said.
