Future-proof roading for anticipated long-term growth
Better connect Rotokauri to the wider city and region
Focus on public transport, walking and cycling options
We want Rotokauri to be a community that’s easy to live in, and transport connections are an important part of this. Works are under way to understand how future roading networks in the area might look.
To protect the land where these future roads and facilities will be, Council must lodge a Notice of Requirement (NOR). We’ll provide further updates on the project at the time of lodgement of the NOR.
Rotokauri-Northwest is the gateway for the Hamilton to Auckland corridor, so planning for these future connections is key. For our Rotokauri-Northwest community, this means we can anticipate long-term development and growth.
The Rotokauri Structure Plan was developed to provide a high-level indication of the likely routes for roading, and the location of community facilities to support residential and commercial development in the area. This project is called the ‘Rotokauri roading designation’ and we’re currently working with Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency on funding. This includes planning for where major roads will go, as well as the provisions for public transport, walking, and biking.
Works are under way to plan smart future roading networks in Rotokauri.

In the futureDesignation in place: the land designated for future roads and essential services will be protected for future development.
Construction is not confirmed or funded currently. Once the designation is approved, we’ll have a period of between 10 and 20 years before designation will expire.
To support growth in the Rotokauri area, the Rotokauri Structure Plan was developed to provide a high-level indication of the likely routes for roading and the location of community facilities (Rotokauri greenway project) that will support residential and commercial development within the area over the next 20-30 years.
