CBD Speed Limit Change Proposal
I support the proposal to reduce the speed limit to 30km/h in the CBD, including the streets set out in the proposal as a short term improvement. It seems a no-brainer, really.
Transport in the CBD must be prioritized and planned with the pedestrian first. Light rail is the best option for trans-CBD transport as pedestrian friendly. Cars should be mostly banned from the CBD; clearly that would help pedestrian safety most profoundly. In the meantime, safety for pedestrians will be enhanced with a reduction in speed.
