New Glenview bus hub means better connections

|

Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency, together with Waikato Regional Council and Hamilton City Council, are planning changes to SH3 Ōhaupō Road in Glenview to support a new bus hub and to improve safety and connections for people who are walking and cycling.

The $2 million upgrade will support Waikato Regional Council’s planned service improvements for the Comet bus route and future bus services in this area. It will provide for new bus stops and shelters and will include a new signalised pedestrian crossing and shared paths and cycleways.

Waka Kotahi Regional Manager Infrastructure Delivery Waikato/Bay of Plenty Jo Wilton says the project aligns with the Waka Kotahi vision of a land transport system that connects people, products and places for a thriving Aotearoa New Zealand.

“The new Glenview bus hub will improve connections for people who are walking and cycling and support public transport efficiency and options in this area. There’ll be new cycleways and shared paths on both sides of the road to provide safe and enhanced connections to the existing shared paths in the area.”

Ms Wilton said the safety of road users, people walking and cycling, and road workers will be paramount during construction.

“Most of the construction work will be done during the day and we will need to balance reducing disruption to road users with minimising impact on neighbouring businesses and properties. There may be temporary lane closures and detours during construction, and temporary restricted access to properties. We’ll be updating nearby residents and businesses and the local community throughout the project.”

Waikato Regional Council Public Transport Network Planning & Performance Team Leader Andrew Carnell said the Comet bus route is one of the most popular bus routes in the city.

“The new Glenview bus hub will have room for three buses, new and improved infrastructure including bus shelters, and allow for greater manoeuvrability for buses.

“Once completed, bus users can expect greater efficiency and an increased frequency of service, with buses on average every 10 minutes. The number 24 Te Awamutu bus will also use the new Glenview Road bus hub.”

Construction is currently scheduled to start in in September and is expected to take around three months to complete.
