What do you think of Auckland's election billboards?

Josephine Franks Reporter from Central Leader

Suddenly you can't move in Auckland for massive billboards plastered with wannabe politicians and their not-so-catchy slogans.

Lots are bad, but some are worse - so we've compiled an unscientific and non-exhaustive ranking.

Have you seen any particularly good (or bad) billboards? Let us know in the comments (add NFP if you don't want it published).

What are your thoughts on Royal Oak roundabout getting an upgrade?

Mandy Te Reporter from Central Leader

Hi neighbours, Royal Oak roundabout could be getting a potential $1m upgrade. In the past five years, there have been 61 crashes at the roundabout. To make it safer, Auckland Transport has suggested a new shape for the roundabout, raised traffic islands, raised speed tables, and new road markings and signage. What do you think needs to be done about the roundabout?

Please add NP if you do not wish for your comments to be in print.
