Help us rename State Highway 1

Now the Expressway is open we have a unique opportunity to rename SH1! SH1 will become a local road within 24 months. Representatives from our district's three iwi and a local historian have identified possible names for seven sections of SH1 that reflect our district's rich historical and cultural history. We encourage you to take a look and to suggest alternatives.
