Safe speed

Simon Bridges
National MP

I feel proud when I drive down Tauranga's Eastern Link at 110km.
It's such a smooth ride, with little road noise and it feels very safe. This section of motorway is one of the safest in the country and that is why the speed limit was raised. It's great to have been the Minister of Transport ensuring our best and safest roads go to 110km.  

We are in the thick of peak time on NZ roads as Kiwis drive to holiday destinations and visit family and friends. It's so good to be able to offer people travelling in our region a modern motorway that meets the best international standards. It also highlights the growth  and prosperity of this region and is in line with  other motorways internationally.

National has led the way with these types of roading initiatives and I hope the new government  continues on our path.

As you are making your plans for New Year's Eve, I want to wish you safe travels. I am planning to spend some time around the barbecue with my family. I also want to wish you a very happy New Year. I hope 2018 will be your best year so far.

What about the rest of the terrible roads and huge traffic problems. What a load of BS. How about spending some money on dealing with our huge traffic problems and getting on with it. 15th Ave, Welcome Bay Rd, Pyes Pa, St Highway 29a, Hewletts Rd, Fraser St. Greerton. This city is being bought to a standstill and all the local Govt does is talk and put obstacles in the middle of the roads and stupid roundabouts in places like Dickson Rd. What an incredible waste of money

Nearly every road is safe, It are the idiots who are making it dangerous.

Blah.And as a local person said the route from Bethlehem to Waihi is a National road of shame. By the way I wish you and your family a merry xmas and thank you for the two toll roads Tauranga has.
