“Land uses and transport infrastructure are the most powerful factors that govern the patterns of metropolitan growth” (from transportblog photo-of-the-day-the-model-demonstrates)
Through the heart of the Beerescourt area is the transport infrastructure of Ulster St/Te Rapa Rd and the ribbon of businesses attracted to it. This allows people to mix local business with city, regional business and courier delivery routes.

It should be noted that in the Beerescourt area, there are no areas with safer speed limits, even though Awatere Ave and Macdiarmid Rd do have traffic calming, giving them a highly desirable safer design speed.
Should speed limits be used to reinforce street calming? The Safer journeys – safe speeds website states “speed limits will better reflect the use, function and safety of the network.” Speed limits and design speed should come together, but when is something of an unknown. If Hamilton is a follower of world trends in road safety, it will come, as it has in many cities including New York. Under the Vision Zero plan – the speed limit in NYC was reduced from 30 MPH to 25 MPH https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/New_York_City_Vision_Zero
