The Ōtaki to north of Levin project of Waka Kotahi, Muaūpoko Tribal Authority and Ngāti Raukawa ki te Tonga along with Horowhenua District Council are working in partnership to build a new roundabout at the Tararua Road/ State Highway 57 intersection.

A new roundabout at Tararua Road and SH57 will immediately improve safety at this busy intersection and will also provide a future connection to the new Ōtaki to north of Levin highway and the Tara-Ika growth area. Tararua Road will be a key connection from the new highway and Tara-ika to Levin. With vehicle volumes set to increase over the coming years we're working now to make this intersection safer for all those who will use it.

The new roundabout will encourage drivers to slow down at the intersection, making it safer for drivers to cross and turn right at the intersection. The new roundabout will also improve pedestrian and cyclist safety by providing a pathway around the traffic lanes, and formal crossings.
