Pleasant, Sumner, Lyttelton, Diamond Harbour, Governors Bay, Akaroa Fight to lower speed not over SLOW DOWN: Love Little River members put up this sign in the hamlet to get motorists to be cautious on the roads. • By Annabelle Dick LITTLE RIVER residents won’t give up the fight to lower the speed limit through a stretch of the hamlet to 50km/h. The city council is consulting with the public to change the speed limit from 70km/h to 60km/h on the Little River section of State Highway 75. It comes after the Love Little River group presented a petition with more than 1000 signatures to the New Zealand Transport Agency in November 2015 to try and get it lowered from 70km/h to 50km/h. While residents are happy to see the limit lowered, it’s still not what they want. The proposed changes will see the limit lowered on SH75 200m south-west of Morrisons Rd to 270m north-east of Western Valley Rd. “This isn’t the end of the campaign in that our group and a lot of locals are still wanting 50km/h,” Love Little River secretary Marcus Puentener said. “60 km/h is what NZTA said they would do, let’s take what we can, but we’ll still be campaigning for a lower limit.” Residents have been battling for about 10 years to have it lowered due to safety concerns. Mr Puentener said vehicles overtake each when travelling through the township, and residents and visitors often cross the thoroughfare to get to different shops. NZTA reviewed the speed limit through the township and could only offer a limit of 60km/h. •Turn to page 3 HARBOUR HISTORY IN PRINT Governors Bay resident Jane Robertson has spent more than five years compiling her new book Head of the Harbour, which is an in-depth history of Teddington to Governors Bay.
