NZTA reference group for the National Speed Limit Register
The NZ Transport Agency is currently developing a National Speed Limit Register (NSLR) and is looking to form a reference group of RCAs to work with during implementation of the register, and would be grateful for your assistance.
The NSLR will provide a modern, technology-enabled, central source of fixed speed limits for all legal roads in New Zealand, and will make it easier for RCAs to update and share their speed limit data.
The aim is to have all speed information on the register by 2020, but in the interim, NZTA would like to work with a small number of representative RCAs to act as early adopters and trial speed register conversion and subsequent use of the register to manage their speed limit records.
NZTA will provide funding assistance to these RCAs in capturing, converting and inputting their data and will provide necessary training and support. These activities are planned for May to October 2019.
The reference group is a great opportunity for RCAs to be engaged early with this exciting project.
We would be grateful for Trafinz’s help in identifying RCAs suitable for the reference group; we are after RCAs that:
- Are willing to work with the NZ Transport Agency
- Have capacity over May to October 2019
- Are representative of diverse RCAs (rural vs urban, currently have manual processes vs highly automated processes)
- Will make a commitment to ongoing use of the register as the primary repository and source of truth for their speed records
Please note, NZTA may need to shortlist the suggested RCAs to find an appropriate representative group.
