Project summary

What we're doing 

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. ​​​​

Why we're doing it

To support the development of Peacocke, and make sure local roading is safe and appropriate for a residential area.

  • Make Peacockes Road safer for all

  • Enable the road to cater to a wider variety of users

  • Be an essential connection between Peacocke and the north and west

  • A key connection

    Peacockes Road will become a major thoroughfare through this new area and connect it to neighbouring areas to the north and south. 
  • Ready when Peacocke needs it

    Construction timeframes will complement the timing of the surrounding developments in the Peacocke area. ​​​​

Frequently asked questions

Will any transport diversions be in place during the upgrades?

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.

How will the upgraded road impro

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.
