The use of the terminology of a 'High Speed Road' and a 'Low Speed Road' is often used in traffic management. The interpretation as stated in the Road Management Act are as follows: ‘high speed road’ is a road in which a permanent speed limit of greater than 60 km/h applies. ‘low speed road’ is a road in which a permanent speed limit of 60 km/h or less applies, but not being a speed limit which applies only because of a temporary reason such as roadworks or a street event.
