Changes to the Newell Rd-Cambridge Rd intersection are under consideration that could restrict the way drivers enter and exit it.
The NZ Transport Agency and the Waikato District Council propose making some changes as part of the work for the Waikato Expressway, which is to be finished by 2020.
A consultation meeting for locals is to be scheduled shortly but meantime discussion documents on the proposal are available on Tamahere Forum.
A NZTA consultant’s report includes options from closing the intersection completely to restricting it to left turn out and in.
The Tamahere Community Committee, which has considered the consultant’s report, rejects the proposal to close the intersection and favours the left turn out option only.
