We're proposing changes in your area
We are proposing a new right turn bay on Waiuku Road, at the intersection with Stuart Road in Pukekohe. The proposal includes widening of the road and shoulder along the intersection, in order to accommodate the turn bay.
Why the changes are needed
The adjustment is expected to improve safety and visibility for traffic turning in and out of Stuart Road, by providing a dedicated facility for the high volume of turning traffic, especially heavy commercial vehicles.
We are aware there has been a fatal crash near this intersection. This proposal was initiated at an earlier stage, and is not designed specifically in response to that incident. We are currently investigating the crash to determine if further safety improvements are required, which will build upon the new layout currently being proposed.
