Last November the highway on the coast of New Zealand was buried after an earthquake, by the side of a mountain. This spring, a landslide buried a highway in California by Big Sur. Wouldn’t it make sense for the constrcution company in New Zealand to come to California after they finish there?

share on:


1000 men and women working to repair the quake-damaged highway and rail route along the Kaikoura coast.

Massive slips, triggered by last November’s 7.8 magnitude earthquake, dumped more than 700,000 cubic metres of material – rock, soil and shingle – much of it onto State Highway 1.

Bridges are being built, debris cleared, and whole sections of SH1 and the rail line realigned.
