Reti gives goat track guidance
National list MP Shane Reti says this summer’s storms have shown a four-lane highway between Auckland and Whangarei is needed urgently.
He describest he current highway as a goat track which is holding back the north economically.
“Good luck trying to get over the Brynderwyns today. You’ll end up either going right through Tomorata, Mangawhai, Langs Cove, Waipu, and going over several one lane bridges and the road is falling apart, or you’ll go left throuhg Paproa, Maungaturoto and end up come in down the bottom of the Brynderwyns, all of them terrible roads,”
