Takatu Road is the only access road to Tawharanui Regional Park. It is used by many thousands of visitors every year. Every year there are many accidents causing injury to people and damage to cars. There have also been fatalities due to the poor condition of the road. It is time this road is upgraded to provide adequate SAFE access to the regional park. There are a few people who dont want the road made safer "as it will attract more people". There are already tens of thousands of people that use this road. IT NEEDS TO BE MADE SAFER. Keeping it in an unsafe condition is not a good means of limiting numbers. Remember... SAFE doesnt have to mean sealed.
This needs action now before more people are killed on this road.
