The request was refused by New Zealand Transport Agency.

From: Deborah Bowyer

Dear New Zealand Transport Agency,

Is it possible for you to provide the locations of 100km (or open road) road signs. I am particularly interested in the locations of these signs in the Waikato region.

Yours faithfully,

Deborah Bowyer

Good morning Deborah


Thank you for your email of 29 May 2012 requesting information about the
locations of 100km (or open) road signs in the Waikato region. The NZ
Transport Agency (NZTA) received your request on 30 May 2012.


The NZTA manages 23 State Highways in the Waikato area. We have a database
which records all the 100kph signs and open area signs, however they are
recorded by route position only.  Once we have extracted this information
we would then need to go through the list to change the route positions
into locations that would be meaningful to you.


As you can imagine this would take considerable time which may mean we
have to extend the timeframe and even consider charging for the time spent
in collating this information.


It may be helpful to you if we could discuss your request with you to
refine it further.


Please feel free to email me at [1][email address] or phone (07)
958 72220 or alternatively you may wish to supply your phone number so
that I can contact you.



Kind regards



Jessie Hedge

The relevant asset data is held in "RAMM" (Road Asset something something). It is, indeed, held in a linear position format (a kilometre offset from a known road location) however:

1. RAMM can give you the numeric latitude and longitude for each asset,
2. RAMM has an 'export to map' function that can pull any linear asset data into a single shapefile (standard GIS format) in seconds.
3. Linear measurements *can* be converted yourself quite easily. The NZTA even provide a web service specifically for converting between Latitude/Longitude and linear route measures on state highways! See https://infoconnect.highwayinfo.govt.nz/...
