This project will
Support frequent bus service
Improve biking and pedestrian safety
Allow for future growth in city-wide bike network
We’re planning to make some changes to Hukanui Road (near the intersection with Callum Brae Drive) to make it safer and more convenient for people to walk, bike and bus the route between Rototuna and Chartwell.
The upgrades include:
The bus stop improvements we’re looking to put in place also support the plans of Waikato Regional Council to create more frequent bus services for Rototuna.
Hukanui Road has also been identified as a key connection in our biking and micro-mobility network plan from Rototuna to Chartwell. With schools and parks in the local area, we want to create a safe environment that gives people the ability to travel freely and independently.
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.
