This project will
Improve connectivity between city and suburbs
Create safer places for people to cross roads
Better access to the Western Rail Trail
This project will improve connections from the Western Rail Trail to east Frankton, Lake Domain communities, and nearby recreational areas. We’ll upgrade existing paths, improve safety and form new connections to the Western Rail Trail.
The upgrades include:
This project was identified in the Council’s Biking and Micro Mobility Programme as a key link between an employment zone around the Waikato Hospital, Frankton and the city centre.
The improvements will provide a safe and easy-to-access network for pedestrians and people on bikes.
This project is funded by Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency’s Transport Choices programme that will help create a connected network across the city, supporting Council’s move to a low emissions transport system in response to climate change.
