Crucial repairs to section of State Highway One at the Brynderwyns has again closed the vital gateway to the north.

Motorists, tourists and truckies need to take diversions either to the west or east.  The region’s economic development and tourism agency, Northland Inc is keen to stress that it’s business as usual in the North and Far North, and it is running a promotional campaigns nationwide. And Chief Executive Paul Linton says a resilience programme has been launched recently to help businesses.

Not-for-profit group, Business Mentors New Zealand CEO, Sarah Trotman says a large number of struggling Northland businesses are seeking support and advice to navigate the difficult time. The Brynderwyns closed at the end of February, but NZTA will temporarily reopen the road for Easter travel, but then it will be off-limits again for another few weeks.
