Last chance to have your say on making Waitomo Caves intersection safer
The NZ Transport Agency is reminding the local community and wider public that this Thursday is your last chance to have a say on the Agency’s four options to improve safety at the intersection of state highways 3 and 37 near Waitomo.
The Transport Agency’s Principal Safety Engineer, Michelle Te Wharau says the four options that the Agency are seeking feedback on are:
Option 1 - An offset T-intersection layout
with head-to-head right-turn-bays on SH3 for both SH37 and
• Option 2 - Similar to Option 1, but includes a left-turn slip lane out of SH37.
• Option 3 - A roundabout at SH3 / SH37, and a T-intersection layout with a right-turn-bay for Mangarino Rd.
• Option 4 - A roundabout at a new location approximately 60 m north of the existing SH3 / SH37 intersection. This would require a realignment of the end of SH37 to improve its link to SH3. This option also includes a right turn bay for Mangarino Road.
The feedback documents and details of the four options are available on the Transport Agency’s website at www.nzta.govt.nz/consultation/waitomo; or they can be ordered by emailing email@example.com or phoning 07 958 7220,” says Mrs Te Wharau.
The closing date for public feedback is this Thursday, 12 September at 5.00 pm.
