Reduce Speed Limit & Improve Road Layout : Pareora Hwy

This petition had 4,127 supporters

With too many tragic accidents and fatalities on SH1 near the Pareora township it’s time we push hard for the necessary changes to make this stretch of road safer with a lower speed limit and safer road layout.

We need lower speed limits that recognise the close proximity of the residential area and high use intersections in and out of Pareora.

We need a safer layout with turning bays and proper curbing (there are no turning bays for South bound traffic turning into Pooke Rd or the Caltex Diesel pump station and the road is uneven and treacherous getting off to the left of the south bound lane).

The passing lane and it’s safety should also be addressed. The passing lane goes into and ends on a blind corner where another intersection sits at the end of it.

We need good clear signage of new speed zones and for new road layout changes.

Children cross the SH1 to get to and from school from Pooke Rd. At around 3pm the traffic queue heading out of Pareora onto SH1 northbound for Timaru is often around 300mtrs long.

Sign today to support safer roads for our community.
