Speed signs on a shuffle

Drivers on Masterton’s Ngaumutawa Rd received mixed signals again yesterday from signage that appeared to limit the speed to both 50kmh and 80kmh.

Masterton District Council promptly fixed the issue, and a spokesperson noted it was likely due to the speed signs being re-erected incorrectly by heavy transport operators.

The same thing happened at a different spot on Ngaumutawa Rd at the end of January.

“When heavy transport operators – house movers, wide loads etc – use the route, they are able to temporarily remove the speeds signs to facilitate movement,” a council spokesperson said.

“At times, these are replaced without checking the direction the signs are facing is correct. “These are rectified as soon as the council is made aware of the situation. These signs are now correct.”
