This project will
Provide safer place walkers, bikers
Create safer pathway across busy intersections
Better connectivity with neighbouring streets
We’re working on upgrading footpaths to improve walking connections from Palmerston Street near the St Peters Tennis Club into the central city.
The upgrades will include:
The speed and volume of traffic on Tristram Street has made it difficult for people walking and biking to gain access - from Palmerston Street and Clarence Street - to the central city. This project will provide a safe connection from Palmerston Street to Clarence Street, and a signalised crossing on Tristram Street will enable everyone to cross the street easily.
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 early 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.
