I have noticed that on match days around AMI in Chch that the local streets have cones on them to distract people from parking.

 

I would be interested to know if these have any legal weight and if tickets or clamps can be issued for parking in these roads.

 

 

 

I can fully understand the local residents not wanting parking on match days and these cones might be placed by them or by the council.

 

However parking is a real issue and premium prices are charged by some private residents trying to capitalize on the issue.

 

Public transport is a waste of time.

 

So this post is not to discuss the merits or lack of but if these cones have any legal weight and as i do I just move them so I can park.

 

Sorry local residents.

 

 

 

thanks

Looks like the traffic management plan is here http://www.tfc.govt.nz/roadworks/31975

 

If the street is inside that boundary it probably comes under the lanes closed or parking removed restriction

i would say its more to prevent damage to vehicles from people walking past, and to provide a less restricted walking path close to the stadium.

 

Also given traffic volumes on other roads exit from those streets might be an issue

Apparently no you can't because:

No you aren't.

 

But as to the actual legality, here is the handy dandy map provided by the Crusaders:
