Lower Taxes, Less Waste,

Championing Value For Money From Every Tax Dollar

Petition: Keep the Napier-Taupo road 100km/h

Google mapsNZTA is planning to cut the speed limit on the entire Eskdale to Rangitaiki section of the Napier-Taupo road from 100km/h to 80km/h.

This change will impose a massive cumulative time cost on millions of journeys between Napier and Taupo. The only winner will be the Government, which gets the revenue generated by speeding tickets.

We're calling on local Labour MP Stuart Nash to join us in telling the Government to stop this change. Taxpayer money should be spent to improve the quality and safety of our roads not to slow Kiwis down.

"The Napier-Taupo highway should remain at 100km/h, with safety improvements."
