It was fascinating to see the unveiling of the Ōparara Basin waharoa (gateway) yesterday.
What's above the ground is impressive enough, but learning about the 20-odd tonne of concrete under each side is mind boggling!
Head up there yourself on a weekend and check it out. (And see if you can find the 3 moa... a challenge from Mal Hansen!)
Word is that the road opens fully from December 1st.
