Southern Links is a network of state highway and urban arterial routes linking State Highway 1 from Kahikatea Drive in Hamilton to the Waikato Expressway at Tamahere, and State Highway 3 from Hamilton Airport to central and east Hamilton. The project forms a key part of the NZ Government's and Hamilton City Council's (HCC) strategy for accomodating projected growth and development in the Peacocke, Tamahere and Hamilton Airport area.
The project also includes a new Hamilton bridge over the Waikato River will be constructed to support growth in Peacocke.
While the project's corridors have been protected, Southern Links is still in the early stages of development.
|2018||HCC considered the timing and funding of Southern Links, along with other infrastructure, as part of the 2018 review of HCC's 10 Year Plan. Major roadworks as part of the Southern Links project were not included in the National Land Transport Programme (NLTP) and as such there is no timeline for construction at this stage.|
