State Highway 93 is a New Zealand State Highway connecting the Southland township of Mataura with the Western Otago town of Clinton. This provides a slightly quicker route between the cities of Dunedin and Invercargill, as it bypasses the town of Gore. It is roughly 43.2 km long.

History[edit]

The highway was gazetted in 2001 [1][2]

Route[edit]

As of 2008, this is the route State Highway 93 takes.

As Old Coach Road, 93 departs from SH 1 and ascends out of Clinton before twisting through a small gorge before veering west and driving through undulating farmland before descending into Mataura. The road passes the old paper mill before turning right and crossing the Mataura River to meet SH 1 near the town centre.
