The cameras are located at key State Highway intersections including:

  • Lorne Street, Ohaupo Road, Kahikatea Drive facing North, West, South and East

The NZTA's Acting State Highways Manager for Hamilton, Michelle Te Wharau, says the cameras deliver an important service to people by giving them the opportunity to avoid congestion and to have smoother and safer trips.

The NZTA now operates webcams across Auckland, Tauranga, Waiouru, Wellington, Dunedin and Christchurch.
