Dunedin, New Zealand, claims to have the world’s steepest street (Baldwin), a title officially challenged in January by the town of Harlech, Wales, when residents walked up and down the narrow, winding Ffordd Pen Llech carrying a GNSS surveying receiver. A total of 14 data points were recorded on the 330-meter-long road, which had an altitude accuracy of ±5 centimeters. New Zealand surveyor Richard Hemi said the GNSS method used by the Welsh group might not be accurate. Best accuracy is to survey from the center of the road — easy on Baldwin St. but much more difficult on a winding lane. The survey was sent to Guinness World Records, which will issue a decision this spring. (Screenshot: Sky News)
