How do you improve one of New Zealand’s most beautiful roads?

  • 1 Jun 2022

Journeys along State Highway 43, the Forgotten World Highway, are now safer and easier. The first stage of sealing work through the Tāngarākau Gorge is complete. That means safer journeys for locals and encourage many more people to experience the beauty of SH43. The project, funded by Kānoa – Regional Economic Development and Investment Unit, is replacing the unsealed section of State Highway 43 with chip-seal to make the road safer and more reliable. Better, safer, more reliable journeys along one of New Zealand's most stunning roads.
