SH1C Cobham Drive-Cambridge Road intersection improvements

October update

4 October 2023


Traffic lights signal the end of the project

The traffic lights at the intersection of State Highway 1C Cobham Drive and Cambridge Road are now active, signalling the completion of the project to make this part of Hamilton safer and more efficient.

Now that the lights are operational this will help peak hour traffic flow better and the wider footpaths and signalised traffic crossings will make this intersection safer for pedestrians, including tamariki attending Hillcrest School.

Over the next couple of days there will be some further work take place on SH1C Cobham Drive with shoulder closures and isolated lane closures required for short periods.  

Waka Kotahi would like to acknowledge that this project has taken longer to complete than was initially expected, and we would like to thank the Hillcrest community for their patience during the disruption that this has caused.
