Constructing a roundabout at the intersection of Durham Avenue and Westminster Drive was a condition of the resource consent granted to the Parklands Residential Estate subdivision in November 2004.
The resource consent required the completion of the intersection before or as part of stage 4 of the subdivision development. This stage also included the construction of the southernmost part of the dual carriageway, now named Orotu Drive, which connects Westminster Avenue with Tasman Drive, Akaroa Road, Pacific Avenue and finally Prebensen Drive.
As well as creating a new roundabout at the Westminster Drive/Durham Avenue intersection, the work included the construction of a new twin box-culvert within Saltwater Creek, to form a bridge carrying the new road and water main connections over the creek into the subdivision.
Fulton Hogan commenced site works in May 2008 and completed the project in December of that year. The contract price was $629,658.
