The first day of summer got off to a fine start as hundreds of people hit the road on Saturday to check out the 8-kilometre Te Rapa section of the Waikato Expressway along Hamilton’s northwestern boundary.
Prime Minister John Key joined the large gathering to officially open the $194 million roading project.
Photographer Bruce Mercer was at the opening to capture the action.
