Homer Tunnel Exit

Coordinates: -44.763575, 167.974645

The Homer tunnel slopes steeply down to the exit on the Milford side, 1 meter down for 10 meters forward. At the exit portal there is a kink in the tunnel to avoid a stream of water flowing in a crevice.

The original concrete portal at the exit was destroyed by an avalanche in 1945. Avalanche risk is now managed preemptively by the Milford Road Alliance using helicopters and a blasting crew.

There is an emergency telephone at the entrance and exit of the Homer Tunnel.
