New Zealand highway forum?
« on: April 11, 2018, 08:57:12 PM »

Apologies for asking such a narrow topic, but I'm on the prowl for a NZ highway forum (similar to aaroads forum), primarily to make some inquiries about highway landmarks that would likely only be known to locals.

The one(s) I used to frequent on yahoo groups have vaporized.

Anyone from NZ (or Australia) who can be of help?

Thanks,

jpm

May as well post the inquiries in this thread. We have a few Aussie visitors. There are only one or two NZ road enthusiasts I'm aware of.

FreewayBrent posted a new video on New Zealand freeways specifically Waterview Tunnel in Auckland

They certainly have some sexy freeways and signage down there.  Would be nice if they could fix the breezewood between NZ 1 and NZ 18, make more of NZ 1 a motorway, and add exit numbers to the motorways outside of Auckland.

Those roads are so American-looking, I'd probably forget to drive on the left side!  Do the variable speed limit signs actually flash, or is that something to do with the camera?

That's an incompatibility between the refresh rate of the LED signs and camera's refresh rate (or something like that).

Yeah, thatís the answer to the question I meant to ask, but decided to sound like an idiot instead.

Someone should reach out to Brent and invite him to join our board. His videos are good stuff.

Oh, he's on the forum  ;-)

I wish more people used their real names on this forum.

Had a nice drive on NZ 1 from Auckland to the tip of Te Reinga in December. We had the flying camera set up and I extracted almost a thousand still images, so I'll post that when it's completed.

I think all the motorways on both islands with exits should have exit numbers, not just the ones around Auckland.
