For examples of some completed improvements and information on how they work, have a look at examples of safety and access improvements.
Access Hamilton sets out the basis for Hamilton's transport planning and investment over the next 30 years. The Access Hamilton strategy and programme is currently being taken through a refresh in order to ensure it is aligned with regional and national policy.

Programmes of works
To implement this strategy four programmes of works have been developed and included in Hamilton’s 10-Year Plan:
- Safer Speed Areas
- Minor Works
- Integrated Transport Initiatives
- Public Transport Infrastructure
Our programme of works is a multi-year approach to lead Hamilton towards improved roads for all.
The programme is consistent with the Government’s Safer Journeys Strategy which identifies that the driver, the vehicle speed and the road environment are all important and necessary to achieve safer roads and safer journeys. The proposed works above are all included under these four programmes.
