Bridges to visit dangerous SH2 stretch
Eight people have died on our roads this week, all in a 24-hour period.
This includes the five Tongan men killed on a dangerous stretch of State Highway 2 in Katikati in Bay of Plenty.
Transport Minister Simon Bridges is visiting the area to discuss road safety measures, and tragically has already organised the meeting before the fatal accident happened.
He spoke to Paul Henry this morning.
