Hamilton Ring Road - Before and after

Much of it is hidden from commuters but from the air the biggest ever transformation to Hamilton’s roading network is taking shape.

The city’s Ring Road project will have an enormous impact on motorists’ ability to avoid congestion and get around the city.

With Wairere Dr sweeping deep to the south to meet Cambridge Rd, linking with Cobham Dr and Kahikatea Dr and the Avalon Dr Bypass, the new Te Rapa section then completes the loop to Wairere Dr.

Using photos supplied by Hamilton City Council, Waikato Times web editor Harkanwal Singh has produced an interactive feature so you can see for yourself how each phase of the Ring Road is shaping up.

Drag the slider in the centre of photographs to see how the roads have changed, or click anywhere on the photographs to move the slider to that point.
