Hamilton City Council and Waikato District Council have received Notices of Requirement (NoRs) from the NZ Transport Agency (as requiring authority) to alter the existing designations for the Hamilton Section of the Waikato Expressway to enable the construction, operation and maintenance of the Ruakura Interchange. A location and layout plan is provided below.
The NoRs involve the widening of the existing designations to accommodate the Ruakura Interchange ramps, connecting roundabouts and a stormwater wetland. The NoRs are intended to enable a direct link between the proposed Inland Port/Logistics and Industrial Areas of the Ruakura Development to the Expressway. Other works associated with the NoRs include:
If the NoRs are confirmed and the Ruakura Interchange is able to be constructed at the same time as the remainder of the Hamilton Section of the Waikato Expressway, then the NZ Transport Agency will not construct the currently designated north facing ramps at State Highway 26 (Morrinsville Road).
The NOR was publicly notified on Wednesday 24 September 2014.
