Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency is improving State Highway 20B (SH20B) to provide a safer journey experience and more reliable travel choices with a new bus and Transit 3 lane in each direction between Pukaki Creek Bridge and the interchange with State Highway 20.

To provide safer and more reliable journeys on SH20B, We want to hear your views on the following proposals before we make a decision as per the Land Transport Rule: Setting of Speed Limits (2017):
  • Speed limit change from current 100km/h to 60km/h
  • Bylaw on the dedicated bus and Transit 3 (T3) lanes.
Please visit nzta.govt.nz/projects/southwest-gateway/20connect for more information.
Please respond to us by Sunday 8 November 2020.

Waka Kotahi will review all the responses received and issue final decision on our website. The changes will also be publicly available when published in the NZ Gazette (late 2020 to early 2021).

Based on the feedback we receive and our own technical analysis if we decide to change the speed limit and create the new bylaw the new speed limit and bus/T3 signs and lane will be implemented when we complete the early works project in early to mid 2021.
