Auckland Transport to sort out confusion over election signs

Auckland Transport wants to sort out confusion over election signs

Auckland Transport wants public feedback on its proposed bylaw to regulate the display of election signs across Auckland for Parliamentary and local elections.

Currently different rules apply across the region and this inconsistency can cause confusion and uncertainty for candidates, political parties and the public. Auckland Transport plans to clarify the situation by proposing standard rules across the council area.

The bylaw will allow for elections signs to be displayed on specified public sites visible from the road, private sites and on vehicles.

It proposes specific rules, focused primarily on safety and appropriate use of the road, for matters such as construction strength, where signs can be put, the style of sign, types of vehicles that can display signs and the size of signs (which must be no more than three square metres in area) .

Details on the proposed Auckland Transport Election Signs Bylaw, statement of proposal and the list of specified sites can be found at:

The bylaw is out for public feedback until 28 February.
