Speed Signs On The Move
February 25 2019
Has anyone else noticed that all the temporary speed signs in Arthurs Point and indeed Cardrona have gone and been returned/ replaced by higher speed zones. For the last year at least, a 50km zone has been applied to Arthurs Point and now its at 70. A similar change has been made in Cardrona where the 70k zone has been moved up to 100k.
For the life of me I don’t know why? Arthurs Point is busy with the one lane bridge, Shotover River tourism immediately beyond and tourist buses going in and out of the hotels and lots of local kids on the street. 50km seemed sensible. When MoT ads are pleading with us to slow down, why on earth put the speed limit UP in relatively highly trafficked areas?
