Papamoa 50

Ian from Papamoa Beach

I came to Papamoa just over a year ago and find the two round-a-bouts on Tara rd and the speeds on Tara rd, Parton rd. and associated roads to be ridiculous.

I came to Papamoa just over a year ago and find the two round-a-bouts on Tara rd and the speeds on Tara rd, Parton rd. and associated roads to be ridiculous.
(I moved from Auckland where roads are silly normally)
I just can't believe residential roads should have such high speed limits and round-a-bouts should require drivers to speed up to enter them. (Doncaster Drive is 50km/h - up from a school zone, but the round-about is 80km for Tara rd.)
The other round-a-bouts has two 50km/h feeder roads (both increasing speed metres before the intersection) and two high speed roads requiring drivers to reduce speed to bring the round-a-bouts traffic to a consistent 70km/h speed (a high speed for all except perfect driving conditions)
To make this situation worse the Domain end of Tara rd is feed by road speeds up to 110km/h and some drivers are still maintaining this speed by the second round-a-bout.

In addition to the above there are other roads in the Papamoa area which have speeds above the normally excepted residential 50km/h.

As the Council have seen fit to put a temporary 50Km/h on Tara rd. while it is used as a bypass for the Te Puke rd. road works and they have also indicated a review of speed limits in Papamoa is pending.
I feel now is a relevant time to raise a public discussion.
To this end I will set up a GROUP on Neighbourly to keep the discussion off the main feed.
Please feel free to join this GROUP for a friendly discussion on this topic.
