New signs bring Tamaki Drive alive

June 14, 2002

Auckland City will begin the replacement and enhancement of all park signs along Tamaki Drive in the next two months at a cost of $97,000.

Many of the existing signs have reached the end of their life and are in need of replacement. Consultation with users of the many parks along Tamaki Drive revealed that people wanted more information of the history of the area, and to have clearer directions on where to go and what to see.

The new signs are part of Councils on-going programme for improving signs in parks by providing clear directions and information on the natural and cultural history of Auckland. The signs use graffiti resistant materials and are designed to compliment the landscape.

The Eastern Bays Community Board with the input of Ngati Whatua O Orakei Maori, Ngai Tai Ki Tamaki and the Tamaki Drive Protection Society has supported the project.

Eastern Bays Community Board Chairperson Toni Millar says “Visitors to the beaches and parks along Tamaki Drive will now be able to find their way more easily and appreciate the significance and history of this area.”
