This project will
Improve infrastructure for bus services
Create safer environment for school
Safer spaces for people to walk and bike
We’re working on installing new raised crossings, new bus stops and upgrading existing ones on Rotokauri Road and Baverstock Road.
The upgrades include:
The street design will accommodate the Waikato Regional Council’s new Meteor bus service which links the west and east of Hamilton city.
The new shared paths, raised pedestrian crossings and accessible bus stops will improve transport safety and accessibility for those who live, work, study and play in the area. This work was identified as part of a joint public transport route improvement study completed with the Waikato Regional Council.
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 2023Public feedback has closed, and the project has moved to the design phase.
February 2024With final design and construction approval from Waka Kotahi, we expect work to begin in February 2024.
March 2024Our goal is to complete the project by March 2024. All projects in the Transport Choices programme will be completed by June 2024.
