Section menu

Project introduction

The Eastern Corridor – Stage Two project includes the section of SH30/Te Ngae Road from Iles Road to Rotorua Airport. We are developing a Detailed Business Case which looks to address safety and connectivity on the corridor, while accommodating for future growth and providing better travel choices.

Community engagement

In August 2020, we sought the community’s feedback on the proposed improvements for Stage Two to help us understand if we have missed anything important before the proposed improvements are finalised.

Feedback closed on Tuesday, 1 September 2020.

Project overview

The Eastern Corridor – Stage Two project involves the section of SH30/Te Ngae Road from Iles Road to Rotorua Airport.

Construction of Stage One, between Sala Street and Iles Road, is already underway.

We are developing a Detailed Business Case for Stage Two which looks to address safety and connectivity on the corridor, while accommodating for future growth and providing better travel choices. This project is a partnership between Waka Kotahi and Rotorua Lakes Council.

Through working alongside Council, iwi and key stakeholders, we have identified proposed improvements for the corridor.

The proposed improvements include:

  • Upgrades to key intersections such as Owhata Road, Wharenui Road, and Brent Road
  • Walking and cycling improvements such as a new three-metre-wide shared path and separated cycle lane
  • Four-laning
  • Safety improvements, such as new pedestrian crossings and safety treatments at intersections.

Proposed improvements

Improvements will be constructed in a phased approach, with some being needed immediately and others being built as development occurs in east Rotorua.
