Project summary

What we’re doing

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.

Why we’re doing this

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.

What is Rotokauri roading designation?

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.

This project will

  • 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

Frequently asked questions

What is the plan for the surrounding land in Rotokauri?

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.
