Help has arrived and emergency supplies have been delivered by air and by sea but in order to sustain the relief effort a more permanent solution to the supply problem needs to be found. A problem solved by the tireless work of the NZTA and soldiers of the NZ Army as they establish a supply route through the treacherous inland road.
In 2016 the small township of Kaikoura and surrounding region found themselves cut off from all support following one of New Zealands strongest recorded earthquakes in recent history.
The New Zealand Defence Force, Emergency services and other agencies mobilised immediately to provide humanitarian aid and disaster relief to the people in the stricken and isolated region.
