A traffic count was undertaken by HDC between March to April 2023. The average number of vehicles using Waikawa Beach Road daily was 932 with 10.2% of those being heavy vehicles. The average speed noted was 80.1 kph. This does not represent a significant increase in traffic since the last count. The general adherence to the speed limit is pleasing.
