Permanent speed uplifts
There are permanent speed uplifts in place on some Southland rivers, and these can be found in the Navigation Safety Bylaws or on our Beacon GIS online mapping system.
Temporary speed uplifts
Requests for temporary speed uplifts (for an event, outing etc) are to be made through the Harbourmaster by emailing to email@example.com with the proposed location, duration and safety precautions.
Note that there are other requirements to obtain a speed uplift, such as consulting with appropriate authorities and organisations, adversiting approved uplifts in the newspaper etc. Details on how to apply for a temporary speed uplift can be found in the Navigation Safety Bylaws, Schedule 8.
