Te Okuroa Drive

We’re building a new arterial road in Papamoa that will link between Stevenson Drive and Parton Road.

With stages A, B, C, D and the first section of E complete (see map), Te Okuroa Drive is now extended to Stevenson Drive. The extension of Te Okuroa Drive to the current position offers a safe and easy connection from the Wairakei growth area to the Parton Road/Tara Road roundabout and provides an alternative link to Papamoa Beach Road, which is currently under a lot of pressure.

The actual connection from Stevenson Drive to Te Okuroa Drive will be completed by Bluehaven by April 2020.

Future stages of work will cover Te Okuroa Drive beyond Stevenson Drive, with an interchange to be built that will connect to the state highway. These stages are in the design phase with construction of the section from Stevenson Drive to The Sands Avenue, which is a future road that will be delivered by a developer, likely to commence in 2021.
