Upcoming closure of Kay Road

Map of the Kay Road closure

Changes are ahead for people using Kay Road in Hamilton’s northeast suburbs.

From 10 January 2022, Kay Road will be closed to allow construction of Resolution Drive, which is being extended from Borman Road to link with the Hamilton section of the Waikato Expressway.

Around mid-year, when the expressway opens to traffic, the eastern side of Kay Road will join Resolution Drive Extension with a left-in and left-out configuration. The western side of Kay Road will remain permanently closed near Tennille Street.

The western side keeps the name Kay Road while the eastern side from Resolution Drive to Horsham Downs Road will be called Ennion Rise.

During construction vehicle access will be maintained for a small number of Kay Road properties inside the closure zone.

The extension of Resolution Drive provides a key city connection to and from the Resolution Interchange and is being built for Council by CityEdge Alliance who is delivering the 22km Hamilton section of the expressway.

An underpass will allow pedestrians and cyclists to go under Resolution Drive near Tennille Street, while shared paths are being built out to the interchange.

A link road from the interchange to Horsham Downs Road is being built separately by Waikato District Council.
