The new roundabout not only acts as a gateway into the new neighbourhood of Peacocke, it also improved safety on Ohaupo Road/State Highway 3 and for vehicles turning in and out of Dixon Road.

One of the first transport projects for the Peacocke redevelopment zone, Schick was selected as the head contractor to build a new roundabout on State Highway 3/Ohaupo Rd (south of the existing Dixon Rd intersection).

The construction involved a wide range of civil construction works and was completed within the 8 month timeframe for the project. Works included:

  • Earthworks consist of over 120,000m3 including cut to waste, cut to fill and stabilised.

  • Drainage included 5m+ deep stormwater, watermain and sewer and services. 

  • Structures include extensive retaining walls, keystone walls and timber retaining walls and 3 box culvert underpasses (3×4.5m and 7m deep) that were designed and installed by the Schick team.
