Reaching the lookout rest area, we alighted to have a cuppa and view the valleys.
The noise from trucks grinding up from Matamata way was deafening.
On leaving to go down to Bethlehem turn off, I counted 70 trucks of different agenda heading to the top. No wonder roads are in need of repair- Gisbourne’s especially.
The businesses who buy the logs, seem to not be paying toward road repairs. Why??
