Further traffic changes are coming up for the State Highway 1C Cobham Drive/Cambridge Road intersection improvements in Hamilton, as the project enters its final stages.
Weather-permitting, from Monday 21 August, the left turn from SH1C Cobham Drive (southbound) into local Cambridge Road will be closed for up to two weeks. This is to allow installation of the new traffic islands, final surfacing and line marking, and Hamilton City Council to complete their final watermain upgrade work.
Once the left turn into Cambridge Road is re-opened the project team will move on to the final finishing stage including installing traffic signals, gantry signage and other work to reinstate the road.
When complete the upgraded intersection will not only significantly improve safety through this residential area, which has many people walking and cycling through the neighbourhood, but will also help future-proof this busy commuter route.
