We've begun building the 1.9km-long Resolution Drive extension which will join Resolution Drive to the Hamilton section of the Waikato Expressway.
It will connect at the Borman Road roundabout.
Once complete, it will provide a convenient connection between the expressway and the city’s north-eastern suburbs - and the planned Rototuna Town Centre.
The extension project includes links for motorists, pedestrians and cyclists. Included is a network of off-road, shared walking and biking paths, and a large and open pedestrian/biking underpass under Resolution Drive.
This project is jointly funded by the Hamilton City Council and the NZ Transport Agency. It will open for use in 2020 when the expressway opens.
Currently topsoil is being removed and a layer of rock and sand is being laid to form the foundation for the new road. This will be followed by drainage and pavement works.
We've delayed the reopening of Kay Road until October 2018 so we can complete major roadworks near the intersection with North City Road.
