New Partnership for Bilingual Traffic Signs Programme

March 24, 2022, 12:29 p.m.

Te Mātāwai and Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency have agreed to make joint decisions on the next set of bilingual traffic signs that are expected to progress to public consultation later in 2022. Reikura Kahi Te Mātāwai Board Co-Chair talks to us about this new partnership which has formed He Tohu Huarahi Māori Partnership Rōpū. Soon we can expect to see roadside signs within the school areas displaying the kupu "Kura" above and "School" below acknowledging te reo Māori as the original language of Aotearoa. This is just the first project of He Tohu Huarahi Māori Partnership Rōpū and It’s currently expected the bilingual signs will be implemented as new projects are progressed or as older or damaged signs need to be replaced.
