Construction work will get underway on State Highway 3 Ōhaupō Road in Glenview (Hamilton) from Monday 9 January to develop a new bus hub with safer connections for walking and cycling.
Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency, together with Waikato Regional Council and Hamilton City Council, are developing the bus hub to support the Regional Council’s planned service improvements for the Comet bus route and future bus services in this area.
Waka Kotahi Regional Manager Infrastructure Delivery, Jo Wilton, says the project will support public transport in the Glenview area and will make Ōhaupō Road better for walking and cycling by building new cycleways and shared paths on both sides of the road.
“This project will give people travelling along Ōhaupō Road more options for their journeys by making it easier and safer to walk, bike or catch a bus.”
Ms Wilton said the safety of road users, people walking and cycling, and road workers will be paramount during construction.
“There may be some temporary lane closures and detours during construction, and on some occasions access to properties may be briefly restricted. We’ll be updating nearby residents and businesses and the local community throughout the project.”
The contract to build the bus hub has been awarded to HEB construction. Work is expected to take about three months to complete.
