A reminder of what?

Auckland Transport say “it’s a reminder”

Piha Road“The 50km roundel on the road is a reminder for people to slow down… and hence no signs”

Okay AT but I took a drive from Lion Rock Corner to this ‘reminder’ looking for a speed indication sign.


Below: Leaving Lion Rock corner near the entrance to Piha Domain. No 50km sign.  Piha Village – no speed limit sign.

Not a sign – just ’roundel’ – Unbelievable !

    Just had a call from Auckland Transport – they are arranging a 50km sign at or near to the top of Piha Hill for traffic leaving Piha. Yay
