Story: Northland region

Unsealed road (3rd of 3)

Unsealed road

In 1961 there was just 536 kilometres of sealed road in Northland, and the region’s proportion of unsealed roads is still high compared with the rest of New Zealand. In 1999 only a third of Northland’s roads were sealed. This road near Kaikohe was photographed in 2005.
