ON THE ROAD

It was interesting to attend an NZTA stopping place workshop a couple of weeks ago. This was part of a consultation process involving representative road user groups to discuss how to improve the driver experience of the Twin Coast Discovery tourist route on State Highways throughout Northland.

In June last year, the Government announced funding, via the Provincial Growth Fund, to develop seven business cases for improving the route to make travel for visitors and locals easier and safer.

Two of these business cases were for better passing and overtaking opportunities and to develop a rest area implementation plan.
