The Avalon Drive Bypass will provide a new bypass road from the Crawford St intersection with Avalon Drive to just south of the existing Norton Road/Rifle Range Road/Lincoln St interestion.

The Bypass will provide a free-flowing high capacity route bypassing the congested section of Avalon Drive from Rotokauri Road to Forest Lake Road.

The Avalon Drive Bypass consists of:

  • A two lane bypass road;
  • a Rotokauri Roundabout, a new four leg roundabout interstion;
  • A Norton Road Roundabout, a new five leg roundabout;
  • The upgrading and extension of local roads to connect to the new roundabouts;
  • A two lane two span bridge to carry bypass traffic over the existing Forest Lake Road;
  • A railway bridge to carry three tracks of the North Island Main Trunk over Norton Road;
  • Lowering of Norton Road to pass under the new railway bridge; and
  • Underpasses at the roundabouts to allow safe passage of pedestrians and cyclists away from road traffic.

There are also significant lengths of noise walls along the Bypass to mitigate the effect of traffic noise on adjacent residential areas.
