The Hillcrest roundabout, where State Highway 1 meets State Highway 26, is Hamilton’s busiest roundabout with over 37,000 vehicles per day. With limited space available, BBO have managed to double the size of the roundabout and fit in a slip lane for vehicles travelling towards Morrinsville. The upgrade has helped ease congestion at the roundabout and has been designed to improve safety for the vehicles and cyclists passing through.
BBO both designed and supervised the construction of this project, and communicated with all affected parties to ensure a positive outcome. This included surrounding businesses and cycle groups who had the opportunity to comment.
Construction crews worked day and night in order to minimise the disruption to traffic, and overall finished two weeks ahead of schedule.
