Motorcycle Safety Project
A scenic loop in the southern Coromandel popular with recreational motorcyclists will serve as a test case for an innovative multi-agency safety pilot project
The southern Coromandel route has been chosen for the pilot because it has experienced a disproportionately high number of serious motorcycle crashes in recent years
Motorcyclists are encouraged to give feedback on the initiatives once they are implemented. Some of the safety improvement work is underway and other initiatives will be in place after the holiday season including upgraded signage, road surface improvements, roadside billboards, removal or protection of roadside hazards, and information maps located in rest areas. Physical works will be completed by April 2014.
