This project will
Improve connectivity between city and suburbs
Provide accessible transport options for everyone
Create safer environment to walk, bike or scoot
We’re making safety improvements to Brooklyn Road, to link walkways and cycleways to provide better transport options that are accessible to everyone.
The upgrades include:
The changes will make it easier and safer to move around the city on bikes and scooters by linking key cycle paths between the central city, the university, schools, businesses and people who live on the eastern side of Waikato River.
Brooklyn Road will also connect other Council investments such as the new fully inclusive playground in Claudelands Park and the Settlement Centre redevelopment in Boundary Road.
The project is funded by Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency's Transport Choices programme and 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 2023Public feedback has closed, and the project has moved to the design phase.
November 2023With final design and construction approval from Waka Kotahi, we expect work to begin in late 2023.
January 2024Our goal is to complete the project by early 2024. All projects in the Transport Choices programme will be completed by June 2024.
