Who thought of this
Who in NZTA thought this was a wise idea?
That is an uncontrolled cycle crossing on the Cambridge section of the Waikato Expressway which NZTA just lifted to 110km/h. The 25% fuel consumption and emissions increase from 110km/h driving aside whoever though placing an uncontrolled crossing on a 110km/h expressway was a good idea should really go learn what Vision Zero is.
If we are to have these crossings rather than grade separated cycle lanes down State Highway 1 then the speed limit should be 90km/h (a default speed limit for two lane rural highways that should also be implemented) not 110km/h.
As a side note the most efficient speed for a car to travel at high speed is 90km/h not 100 or 110. This has been proven in the USA by the National Transport Safety Board and other bodies.
