We want to improve the safety of this stretch of the highway by installing side barriers to reduce the risk of run-off-road crashes. We'll also add rumble strips to parts of the road, improve signage, widen shoulders and improve intersections.
This project aims to make the 9km section of State Highway 3, from the State Highway 37 intersection at Hangatiki through to the township of Te Kuiti, safer for all road users. This section of the highway is classified as a medium to high-risk crash zone.
Thank you to everyone that provided feedback on this project. Construction is due to start in the next two months.
Note: Estimates are revised periodically. This is the estimate at December 2018.
