NZ Newswire logoNZ Newswire 6/10/2016

A $15 million road safety engineering programme for the South Island's key tourist routes has been given the green light.

Associate Transport Minister Craig Foss says work will start in the summer.

There will be intersection upgrades, hazard removal, shoulder widening and sealing and signage improvements on state highways in Otago, Southland and on the West Coast.

"We want all visiting drivers to experience New Zealand as a safe, attractive and accessible place," Mr Foss said.

"The engineering programme will benefit all road users."
