Crux site visit: little evidence of arterial road work

by Peter Newport - Mar 19, 2024

As ratepayers become more and more alarmed at the apparent lack of progress, and spiralling cost, of Queenstown's $128 million 'road to nowhere', Crux decided to visit the site today.

We walked the entire 670 metres of stage one of the arterial road from east to west and found no actual construction activity underway. We'll let our photos tell the story. All of the images were taken between 10am and 11am (Tuesday, March 19). The weather was perfect.
