He Tohu Huarahi Māori bilingual traffic signs programme

Waka Kotahi wants to contribute to having te reo Māori seen, heard and spoken wherever possible to continue the revitalisation of the language.

Alongside our partners Te Mātāwai and Local Government we are working to enable the use of bilingual traffic signs, to ensure safe and consistent use across state highways and local roads.

This project is also looking at ways to enable the use of te reo Māori and te āo Māori icons and symbols on traffic signage.
