Success! Lowering the Speed Zone on Godley Road


We've just been informed that the Selwyn District Council (SDC) have moved to lower the speed zone around all schools in our district to 50km/hour! This is a major achievement in improving the safety of our school community.

Ironic - the site I got this image
from reports a lowering of speed zones
dating back to 2001... hmmm.
This has been a long, drawn-out issue which has not had success for a number of years for our school. I'm delighted to announce that we've finally done it. A huge thank you to Amy Adams, MP for Selwyn District, for her tireless support and in championing this safety issue for our schools and community. Thank you also to everyone in our community who signed the 4,100 strong petition (across the district) and Commander Phil McKee who also supports our cause.
