Uruti Road Tunnel -South Portal

 The Uruti or Kaka Road tunnel was constructed between 1916 and 1923 and it links the two roads through a steep ridge. It is sometimes also known locally as the Tangitu tunnel after the stream below.

Until it was excavated settlers at Pehu had access only from Stratford through Kiore . The tunnel is notoriously unstable but it has been maintained although closure has been proposed several times in the past.
