Fuel a worry for Golden Bay residents and tourists

From Morning Report, 7:37 am on 23 February 2018

It's been three days since Golden Bay was cut off due to slips on the only access road, and food and other supplies are having to be shipped and flown into the area. There is still no time frame for when SH 60 over Takaka Hill, which was badly damaged by Cyclone Gita, will reopen. Two barges full of food and other supplies arrived in Golden Bay's main harbour, Port Tarakohe, yesterday, much to the relief of locals and business owners. But so far these deliveries have not included any petrol, with stores in Golden Bay having to ration their stock. Logan Church is in Golden Bay and joins us with the latest update.
