Auckland Transport fixes T3 sign two years after changing rule
Listen now
Description
Auckland Transport has admitted that a T3 transit lane on Remuera Rd was made open to all traffic on weekends more than two years ago, but the sign restricting traffic has remained until July 2022.  The T3 transit lane was initially a trial. The trial ended in May 2020, but the sign restricting traffic on weekends remained for more than two years.  Auckland Transport head of transport and parking compliance Rick Bidgood told Checkpoint no vehicles have been ticketed for driving in the lane on Saturdays or Sundays since May 2020, but the council was "bound by Covid" thus delaying the replacement of the sign. ​ ​Bidgood said he is not aware of any other transit lanes in Auckland where policy has changed but signage has not.
