‘Welcome to Featherston’ signs – update 2

We recently shared an update on the Welcome to Featherston signs. At the time, we were awaiting a resource consent outcome from NZTA about whether the signs could be erected at the southern and northern entrances to Featherston on State Highway 2. 

Unfortunately, despite us being hopeful about the southern sign, NZTA were unable to support the signage location and design for both sites. Their biggest concern was the signs not being frangible (how they would react if it was impacted by a vehicle), either with or without the stone base which formed part of the design.

We want to thank the Featherston Beautification Group and Featherston Community Board for their continued commitment to brightening up the entrances to Featherston. Alongside these groups, we will now have a rethink of options and consider the next steps.
