A road in Central Otago has been declared as New Zealand’s most dangerous road by an international survey by Australian insurer Budget Direct.
The study revealed that Skipper’s Canyon Road, a 26.5km road overlooking the Shotover River is the most dangerous road in the country. While it is not the road with the most number of fatalities caused by car accidents, it is located in very precarious terrain. It is a very narrow and steep unsealed road that was carved into steep cliffs more than 140 years ago, during the gold rush.
