Te Oneroa-a-Tōhē / Ninety Mile Beach

Te Oneroa-a-Tōhē / Ninety Mile Beach has a current default speed limit of 100kph. The following speed limits are proposed:

• 30kph – within 200m of a legal beach access

• 60kph – on all other parts of the beach

It should be noted that a range of options, outside of a permanent legal speed limit, can be employed to address issues such as events and other activities on the beach.
