This project will
Improve biking and pedestrian safety
Infrastructure for accessible bus service
More options to travel to other destinations
We’ve made changes to the Lake Road and Commerce Street intersection in Frankton to make it safer and more convenient for people to walk, bike and bus through the area.
The upgrades include:
The changes made to the intersection allow for Waikato Regional Council’s new Meteor bus service to travel through the area, connecting the Frankton to the central city. It has also provided a much calmer environment to help people cross the busy roads safely.
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.
