Cycle way heads to Chartwell

The Hamilton Road cycleway in Cambridge is expanding westwards through Payne Park and towards the new Chartwell housing development.

With it will come two new bus stops and another signalised pedestrian crossing linking the path and the medical centre across the road adjacent to Cambridge Athletic and Harrier Club.

In his report to this week’s Service Delivery committee, Transportation manager Bryan Hudson said the extension would provide “safe, high quality walking and cycling facilities” from Victoria Street.

Design investigations are also underway for drainage improvement and sealing in Hall Street to fix the road edges.

Residents in one of Cambridge’s oldest streets have complained it resembles a cross country course with tree roots, uneven concrete, piles of asphalt and loose stones.

Hudson also told the committee, with the opening of the Hamilton section of the Waikato Expressway, SH1B would transfer to Waipā and Waikato district councils at the end of this year.

The Waipā section starts north of Fonterra in Hautapu and stops halfway down Church Road.

Waka Kotahi would complete renewals like resealing required over the 2022-23 summer and will replace a large culvert under Victoria Road, near Zigzag Road, which is at the end of its life.
