To make sure the Peacocke area is safe and appropriate for a residential area, we're planning some upgrades to a section of Peacockes Rd.
Currently the road is a rural road, but when the Peacocke neighbourhood is developed it will be an important transport connection between Peacocke and the north and west. Because of this it will need to cater to a lot of different users, including pedestrians, cyclists and buses as well as more cars. That's why we're currently looking at early designs for the road.
Construction timeframes will depend on the timing of the surrounding developments in the Peacocke area.
The upgrade is budgeted to cost $12.6M. Peacocke is being built with the support of $290.4M of the Government's Housing Infrastructure Fund, made up of a $180.3M 10-year interest-free loan and $110.1M of Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency subsidies.
