State Highway 26/Ruakura Road/Lissette Road Intersection Upgrade

10 August 2015

The NZ Transport Agency has lodged a Notice of Requirement to Waikato District Council to alter a designation at the intersection of State Highway 26, Ruakura Road and Lissette Road in order to accommodate a roundabout and associated works.

Description of Proposal

The purpose of this Notice of Requirement is to alter Designation J17 of the Waikato District Plan (WDP) to provide for a roundabout and associated works at the intersection of SH26/Ruakura Road/Lissette Road. More specifically, the Project includes the following:

• Widening of the existing designation to accommodate the roundabout and connections to the existing roading network;
• Provision for stormwater attenuation, treatment and disposal from the intersection upgrade which includes discharging to a wetland via Ruakura Road, and a combination of soakage trenches and swales along Lissette Road;
• Land acquisition from six properties to accommodate the roundabout and connections to existing roads;
• Reinstatement of fences on new legal boundaries and landscaping of the intersection; and
• Installation of additional lighting columns, and signage to improve the safety of the intersection.

In addition to the above works, but outside of the designation boundary, the Transport Agency also proposes to undertake works within private property to address any potential effects of the proposed works on those properties from which land is required.
