Increase Kāpiti Expressway speed limit to 110 Kph?

Expressway speed review map.

Waka Kotahi want to know our views on increasing the speed limit on the SH1 Kāpiti Expressway. Consultation closes Monday 20 May 2024.

The proposal covers approximately 25 Km of road. Travelling at 100 Kph that takes 15 minutes. At 110 Kph it takes about 13.5 minutes.

We’re proposing a new speed limit on the Kāpiti Expressway, from north of the Poplar Avenue at Raumati interchange to south of the Ōtaki northern interchange.

We’re committed to delivering new and safe roads that help people get where they need to go efficiently and safely. This section of the Kāpiti Expressway currently has a speed limit of 100km/h. We’re keen to hear what you think about our proposal to increase the speed limit to 110km/h.

The Kāpiti Expressway is an important road that’s helped reduce congestion and improve travel time reliability for people and freight in the area.

Note: Waka Kotahi also tell us: reduce your speed (driving over the speed limit can increase fuel consumption by 10%).
