Unrepaired state highway causes community angst


Some Murchison locals are concerned the part of SH 6 collapsing could take out both lanes if it’s not repaired but Waka Kotahi assure residents work will begin on it in spring. A part of State Highway 6 in disrepair has some residents worried if it’s not fixed soon, it could leave the tiny town cut off from tourists and services. State Highway 6, six kilometres south of Murchison township, is down to one lane while the northbound lane has large cracks in it, metres away from where the road drops off into the Buller River below. “We realise that there would be lengthy diversions should this section of highway need to close. “Thanks to all local residents and daily road users for taking care around this one-lane section until it can be returned to two lanes.”
