New Zealand Roads - Urban Rte. 3/old NZ 1

Urban Route 3, former NZ 1

All photos were taken northbound.

Floral lamps adorn Great South Road in Papakura. They may be inverted versions of ko̅whai, which normally hang upside-down. Historically, there was one road from Auckland heading south to all points, and that later became NZ 1 (which is now on a freeway).

Papakura's namesake statue is a WWI memorial.

Across Slippery Creek, a small tributary of Drury Creek.

Current NZ 1
