Electronic billboards may NOT be placed in the State road reservation without written approval from the Department of State Growth.

Electronic billboards may only be displayed by a road authority for traffic management or road safety purposes, for civil or other emergency by an appropriate statutory authority or where written approval is provided by the Commissioner for Transport for legitimate traffic management or road safety purposes.

Approval is granted in accordance with the Traffic Act 1925 and the Roads and Jetties Act 1935. The use of electronic billboards for roadside advertising is not permitted.

If you wish to install an electronic billboard in the State Road Reservation, you will need to submit a Traffic Management Permit application.

Applications must be received by us at least 20 business days before the expected start date for the display of the signs. This gives enough time for the application to be assessed.

Applications can be sent by email:
