Milford Road Alliance's hard work recognised internationally

From Afternoons, 1:40 pm on 6 December 2023

Workers on the Milford Road in Fiordland National Park are isolated, hard working and often not seen by the thousands who use the road to access some of the most pristine incredible nature we have in Aotearoa.

Now the team who keep the traffic flowing and the tourists happy have been recognised internationally for their efforts, they're the deserving recipients of the International Road Federation's 2023 Global Road Achievement Award - it was handed out in the US last month.

Kevin Thompson is the  Milford Road Alliance team manager, he speaks to Jesse.
