Seven sets of stoplights should improve the flow of traffic through Taupō, expert consultants say.

Taupō District Council commissioned specialist consultants Traffic Design Group [TDG] in 2017 to find ways to improve the flow of traffic through Taupō township.

It now has 12 proposed solutions, which include traffic lights at Spa Rd’s intersections with Titiraupenga St and Ruapehu St, as well as at Norman Smith St’s intersection with Wairakei Drive.

TDG’s Grant Smith said traffic lights at Spa Rd intersections would incentivise Spa drivers to use Titiraupenga St instead of Tongariro St.
