1600k: Getting there together
Did you know in the Hurunui district we have a road network covering 1600 kms?
We are on a mission to keep improving the safety and enjoyment of people using every one of our 1600 kms of road network. You can help us on this mission by using the interactive map linked below to let us know your experiences.
Later this month you will also be able to let us know in person as our Community Team hit the road to visit community groups and organise events to discuss road safety. We'll let you know more about this soon!
What do you think about our roads?
Let us know using our community driven road safety map. Use this map to submit your thoughts on places where you feel unsafe as a driver, cyclist or walker, and any places where the signed speeds seem inappropriate to road users.
The map allows you to drop pins on exact locations and tell us about the problem you've identified. If someone else has already identified the same problem you are able to agree with their comments.

Why do we want to know?
In the short term, (during the initial consultation period to 25 November 2019) the aim is to collect data to inform the Council's Speed Limit Bylaw. This bylaw sets out the legally enforceable speed limits throughout our district.
In the long term, the map will allow us to stay familiar with your experiences on our roads and on top of any concerns.
We will use the map to generate reports to inform and support future work programs. The intent of collecting this data is for longer term projects so community feedback is able to drive our priorities and make a real difference in shaping local roads and improving safety. However, please continue to use the Snap Send Solve app for immediate concerns.
