This priority project provides a critical link to the Hamilton section of the Waikato Expressway and supports our commitment of shaping a city that’s easy to live in, explore and connect.
The original Ruakura Road had deep ditches beside the traffic lanes, uncontrolled intersections, and limited kerbing, lighting and footpaths. Upgrades to Ruakura Road make it safer for all road users.
The upgrade included traffic lights at the intersection of Ruakura Lane/Ruakura Road and Ruakura Road/Knighton Road, as well as shared paths and dedicated bike paths off the main roadway for people to enjoy.
