Living in a suburb with more than 500 properties and only one exit – what could go wrong?

Riversdale, in Blenheim, bordered by rivers off State Highway 1, is home to hundreds – who could get stuck there in an emergency.

To leave the suburb by vehicle, residents such as Aileen Thomas must drive down Budge St, cross a railway line and turn onto the highway.


Don't be shy! Have your say....
