AA calls for massive upgrade to NZ’s most dangerous roads

From Nine To Noon, 9:37 am on 7 August 2017

The Automobile Association is calling for a massive investment to improve the safety of our roads ahead of the election next month. The AA has found about 40 percent of our state highways score only 2 out out of a possible 5 in a 5-star safety rating system. The worst offending roads are State Highway 22 from Drury to Pukekohe, and State Highway 58, close to Wellington, from Pauatahanui to Upper Hutt. Lynn Freeman speaks with the AA's motoring affairs general manager Mike Noon.
