The government has announced that the speed limit can go up to 110km/h on some Kiwi roads.
"Changes made under the guide may include altering road design, lowering speed limits, or in certain circumstances, raising them.
"To be eligible for a 110 km/h limit, a road will have to meet very strict conditions, including having a median barrier, at least two lanes in each direction and no direct access to neighbouring properties." said Associate Transport Minister Craig Foss.
Motorways are tipped to be the roads that the speed limit is upped on but the timing of when this has happened has not be confirmed.
