This project will
Provide infrastructure for key bus services
Improve pedestrian safety
Improve traffic flow at a busy intersection
The Orbiter bus service hasn’t been operating at the southern end of Anglesea Street (across from Countdown) because of safety concerns. The bus stop position meant the bus had to cross two lanes of traffic to enter the roundabout.
We’re now making the roundabout approach a single lane and creating an in-lane bus stop. This will make the stop safer and allow the Waikato Regional Council to resume its Orbiter bus service at this site. Works will start in September.
The upgrades include:
The infrastructure upgraded at this site will allow the Waikato Regional Council to restart its Orbiter bus service. The upgrades will also provide a calmer environment for pedestrians crossing the road.
This project is funded by Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency’s Transport Choices programme and it will help create a connected network across the city, supporting Council’s move to a low emissions transport system in response to climate change.
September 2023With final design and construction approval from Waka Kotahi, work began in September 2023.
October 2023Our goal is to complete the project by October 2023. All projects in the Transport Choices programme will be completed by June 2024.
