As Peacocke grows, we’re upgrading this rural road to suit an urban environment, making it more suitable for increased car traffic, public transport, pedestrians, and people on bikes.
We're planning some upgrades to a section of Peacockes Road to help bring it up to the standard of an urban road.
The upgrade is budgeted to cost $12.6 million. Peacocke is being built with the support of $290.4 million of the Government's Housing Infrastructure Fund, made up of a $180.3 million 10-year interest-free loan and $110.1 million of Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency subsidies.
Construction timeframes will depend on the timing of the surrounding developments in the Peacocke area.
To support the development of Peacocke, and make sure local roading is safe and appropriate for a residential area.
Early 2022Detailed design and planning is complete, and we're searching for a construction partner.
Late 2022We'll start work on the road upgrade in sections along Peacockes Road.
As we progress the urban upgrade, we will need to close sections of the road to complete our work. We’ll let nearby residents and road users know about any upcoming road closures and alternative ways to move around Peacocke during the project.
We’ll be widening the road to allow traffic to move safely, and we’ll be building new footpaths, kerbs and channels, and adding street lighting to make it safer for all.
This road upgrade is helping shape a city that’s easy to get around while creating safer environments for road users, pedestrians, and people on bikes.
