Safety upgrades at key city intersections

Work starts on Monday 25 March at the Anzac Pde/Memorial Dr intersection and at the Killarney Rd/Ellis St intersection to improve safety for people who walk or bike through these busy areas.

The upgrades are part of Hamilton City Council’s $4.5M of road safety improvements planned this year to make it safer for people to get around our growing city by bike, walking or bus.

The Anzac Pde/Memorial Dr intersection will be upgraded with a wider footpath and a new raised platform for pedestrians. The footpath on the approach to Memorial Drive from the city centre will be widened to slow turning traffic and the new platform will help people cross more safely at this intersection. The cycle lane will be repainted and on the other side of Anzac Pde on the approach to the bridge the cycle lane will be painted green to better define it.

To allow this work to be done traffic will be unable to turn left or right into Memorial Ave from Anzac Pde. Detours will be in place to take traffic down Grey and Te Aroha Sts during working hours of 7am to 6pm. This will be carried out from Monday 25 March to Thursday 18 April, with some Saturday work possible. Pedestrian access through the work area and across the bridge will be maintained at all times, and most parking spaces will continue to be available.

To improve safety at the Killarney Rd/Ellis St intersection pedestrian refuge islands will be installed, footpaths widened and an accessible raised kerb installed at one of the Killarney Rd bus stops. This work will run from Monday 25 March to Friday 12 April and stop/go may be in place at times during installation of the refuge islands.

The Council thanks all road users for their patience and understanding while this safety improvement work is done, and for safety reasons urges extra care to be taken when driving through both work areas.
