Jointly funded by Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency and Council, the upgrade of the stretch of Omokoroa Road from Western Avenue to Tralee Street is due to start construction this year.


Traffic travelling along the peninsular will be impacted due to temporary traffic management required for the construction. Property access along the project length may be temporarily impacted due to the reconstruction of driveways.


Construction of this two-lane, 1100m of new roadway will include:

  • relocation of underground services

  • relocation of existing overhead power lines

  • upgrading stormwater pipes

  • upgrading street lighting

  • installation of a new watermain

  • road widening with kerb and channel

  • a footpath and shared pedestrian/cycleway

  • pedestrian and cycleway facilities for crossing Omokoroa Road

  • new bus stops and two new bus shelters

  • an upgrade of the Tralee Street/Margaret Place intersection

  • a new roundabout at McKenna/Omokoroa Road intersection

  • a concrete median barrier along the roadway between McKenna Lane and Tralee Place, to enable safer vehicle movement on both sides of Omokoroa Road for traffic going in and out of the neighbouring commercial premises, medical centre, supermarket and holiday park.


Omokoroa residents are encouraged to come along to an information evening to find out more about the upgrade and the work programme for the project that is to be tendered this month (February).
