New Matapihi road layout

Well done those engineers who designed the new layout of SH29, constructed at glacial speed across Matapihi Peninsula. Recent extension of the median barrier from the top of the peninsula south to the Maungatapu Bridge means that in the event of an accident or blockage of the highway between the bridge and Te Maunga (in either direction) there is no way to clear traffic trapped behind the incident.

Great in the event of a peak-period prolonged road closure and ‘scene investigation' by the Police Serious Crash Unit!

Should the Christmas/New Year school holidays be moved to February when the weather is typically better in NZ?

Yes, that is when I would take my holidays.
No, you never know when there is going to be bad weather.
