The 100 worst intersections in NZ
New Zealand's 100 worst intersections have been named.
Associate Transport Minister Michael Woodhouse said between them they have claimed 53 deaths and accounted for 445 serious injuries between 2003 and 2012.
The list was compiled by the NZ Transport Agency and local government.
"We're making good progress in reducing the road toll, but there is no room for complacency," Woodhouse said.
It's great to see these agencies working together to achieve tangible results that will reduce crashes, prevent injuries and save lives."
Guidance had also been provided to road controlling authorities on the most effective ways of improving safety at intersections for all road users.
"The Government has been pushing ahead with safety improvements while the list was in draft form, and it's pleasing to see 22 of these intersections have already had safety improvements completed, with planning or investigation at various stages for the remaining 78," Woodhouse said.
"The list will be a permanent initiative and be updated periodically, with improvements monitored to ensure they are delivering results."
