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.
While the project's corridors have been protected Southern Links is still in the early stages of development, with construction stages expected to be 10-15 years away.
In July 2017, the NZ Government announced HCC had been allocated NZ$182 million from the $1 billion Housing Infrastructure Fund along with a NZ$90m subsidy from the New Zealand Transport Agency (NZTA) for the HCC's Peacocke development proposal. The proposal comprises the construction of thousands of new houses over the coming decades, along with associated infrastructure. It's expected a portion of the funds will be allocated to parts of the Southern Links network.
HCC will consider the timing and funding of the project, 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.
