Maintenance and management
Find out about how we maintain and manage our traffic, transport, roads and more.
How can I report a local roading issue?
If it’s a safety issue, problem or damage issue related to a road, footpath, signage, road, transport or parking infrastructure, or traffic signals in Hamilton (or State Highways running through the city) you can report it to us. If it’s a State Highway issue outside the city, you need to contact Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency. We will work with them if the road is within our city boundary.
See our road maintenance and management page for more information on what we do.
Who looks after Hamilton’s transport system?
Council manages and maintains local roads, kerbs, footpaths, traffic lights and transport signs. We also have a road safety programme that includes working with other groups. Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency looks after state highways including those running through Hamilton: SH1 (to Ngaruawahia and to Cambridge), SH3 (to Te Awamutu), SH23 (to Raglan) and SH26 (to Morrinsville).
Waikato Regional Council runs the city’s bus services (see busit.co.nz). Council is responsible for bus lanes, bus stops, the Transport Centre and the Rotokauri Transport Hub. We have partnered with Waikato Regional Council on the public passenger train service between Hamilton and Auckland (see tehuiatrain.co.nz).
We also carry out road maintenance and management.
How are we ensuring road safety is a key focus in our city’s transport system?
Hamilton has adopted a Vision Zero target when it comes to deaths on our city’s roads. Our approach is aligned with and complemented by the Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency’s Road to Zero campaign.

In addition to what we do, Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency has road safety information including:
- tips on safe vehicles, safe driving, motorcycle skills, walking, biking and micro-mobility devices
