More Info →Making of Scotts Road, Kahuterawa

Construction of Scotts Road, from the top of Kahuterawa Road and Scotts Road was carried out by the Dittmer brothers. Here they are fitting markers, to indicate the gradient for this particular section of road. A Government grant enabled the road to be improved, and it was hoped to join Kahuterawa and Scotts Road. When the original contractor gave up it was taken over by Henry Dittmer and his sons, who farmed on Scotts Road, also known as Hill Top Road and Motu Rimu
