What’s being proposed?
Thanks to funding from central government we are Futureproofing Cameron Road to
- Make Cameron Road safer
- Provide more ways to travel
- Make Cameron Road more attractive
Changes will include new part-time bus lanes, a new two-way cycleway, and improvements to make the area more walkable, attractive and community friendly. This includes 30,000 new plantings that reflect the history of the area, attract bird life and create spaces for the community to spend time in. Businesses will have the opportunity to interact with the street and create outdoor dining areas for example. Existing traffic lanes will be retained. Other proposed changes include road layout changes to some of the side-road intersections connecting with Cameron Road, more pedestrian crossings and upgrades to stormwater and wastewater.

Creating connected communities
We have been working with the community to develop a 30-year plan for Te Papa peninsula that will provide greater housing choices, safe and efficient transport options, local amenities and the infrastructure needed to support healthy and connected communities now and in the future.
Futureproofing Cameron Road is the first project on the path to bringing this plan to life. It aligns with our city’s wider strategies, including the Urban Form Transport Initiative and Western Bay of Plenty Transport System Plan that have been endorsed by Council.
This project has been broken into three stages:
Stage one - is from Harington Street to the hospital, the planning and construction for this has been funded by Central Government.
Stage two - is from the hospital to Barkes Corner, and the funding for developing a business case and design was included in the grant from Central Government. We’ll be asking for your input in 2021.
Stage three - a long-term goal (pending funding) will create a connection from Barkes Corner to Tauranga Crossing in Tauriko. There are no set dates for this stage.
