Central Otago speed limits at 72 locations around the district will change by the end of August.
    A further eight speed limit proposals required further public consultation, which is scheduled to occur after the October local authority election.
    The community first commented on a package of 80 speed limit changes in March and April.
    Central Otago District Council approved the bulk of the package in July, after making 23 adjustments as a result of what the community had to say.
    Infrastructure manager Quinton Penniall said the council was now working with its maintenance contractor and Waka Kotahi to implement the changes.
    “Signs are being installed and we are certifying the speed limit records in the new National Speed Limit Register.
    ‘‘People can expect to see new signs going up, which will be covered until they go live by the end of August,” Mr Penniall said.
    Full details of the new speed limit bylaws are available on the council’s website.
