Support improvements to SH1 Taupo to Turangi

The Business Case for improvements to SH1 Taupo to Turangi is soon to be completed by the Government. 

We want to send a clear message that this stretch of State Highway 1 is unacceptable. 

Bulli Point has continued to be extremely dangerous and it is inconceivable that we still have a section of SH1 where isn’t enough room on the two lane road for a truck heading in each direction to fit past each other. 

SH1 the backbone road of the North Island and the section Taupo to Turangi is not currently fit for purpose for regular travellers or visitors to our towns. 

Proposed speed reductions may be a temporary measure, but improvements to the road are now urgent. 

The government needs to commit to fixing this road.
