This sign will help improve event management and incident management capabilities across Auckland's road network and it will offer real-time travel updates therefore providing a better experience for road users.


The proposal received positive feedback with some concerns raised by respondents. After reviewing this feedback and all other supporting evidence, the proposal will proceed without changes to the next stage of detailed planning.

Specific feedback

  • Request to have the sign moved away from the path and further up the road. The sign pole will be 3m away from the kerb line to leave space for the proposed shared path. There are trees on the route. The sign will be blocked by the trees if move further up the road.

Next steps

We expect to introduce this work by the end of July 2018 subject to further changes in design or funding issues

Contractors will issue 48-hour notices to all affected residents prior to construction work.
