Safe and future-proofed
The new roundabout being constructed at Pukenui Road will be three-armed and double laned. There will be two approach lanes from each direction, with two straight lanes in both directions of travel along SH3. The roundabout will reduce speeds on the through lanes, making the intersection safer.
There will be separate lanes for vehicles turning left or right out Pukenui Road; this will reduce delays here and will become more important as traffic on this road increases with the construction of a new Commercial Vehicle Safety Centre, and developments at Ōhakea.
We expect to begin construction of the roundabout later this year. See the schematic design larger on the project webpage.
