Project Summary

What we're doing

We’re working on installing new raised crossings, new bus stops and upgrading existing ones on Rotokauri Road and Baverstock Road.

The upgrades include:

  • two raised pedestrian crossings on Rotokauri Road
  • widening the footpath into a shared path on the northern side of Rotokauri Road between Baverstock Road and the entrance to Nga Taiatea Wharekura
  • new bus stop and shelter on the northern side of Rotokauri Road outside Nga Taiatea Wharekura
  • building a footpath on the southern side of Rotokauri Road between Baverstock Road and 109 Rotokauri Road
  • new bus shelter on the southern side of Rotokauri Road outside 109 Rotokauri Road
  • removing the bus turn around area outside 78 Rotokauri Road and replacing it with a shared path
  • new bus stops outside 2 Baverstock Road and 5 Baverstock Road
  • a raised pedestrian crossing on Baverstock Road between the new bus stops
  • widening the footpath on the western side of Baverstock Road between Rotokauri Road and 2 Baverstock Road.

Why we're doing it

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.

This project will

  • Improve infrastructure for bus services

  • Create safer environment for school

  • Safer spaces for people to walk and bike
