Five Māori university students are gaining first-hand experience on one of New Zealand’s largest infrastructure projects thanks to a new partnership between student support programme Pūhoro STEMM Academy and Te Ahu a Turanga: Manawatū Tararua Highway.
Restoring road access on State Highway 23 (SH23) between Whatawhata and Raglan is urgently underway. This crucial link between Raglan and Hamilton was fully closed on Wednesday last week, following a serious slip on the section known as the Raglan Deviation.
Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency has begun the work needed to get a clear picture of the full extent of the slip damage to State Highway 25A (SH25A) in the Coromandel, the first step in planning a solution to restore this vital transport link for the region.
Waka Kotahi is urging everyone using roads in affected areas to adjust their driving to the conditions, which means slowing down, increasing following distances, switching headlights on and watching for flooding and other debris on the road.
