Hamilton's busiest roundabout is in for a $2 million dollar revamp.

The Hillcrest roundabout is being replaced by a brand new, bigger roundabout with three lanes along State Highway One and a slip lane to Morrinsville Road.

NZTA Waikato Highways Manager Kaye Clark says traffic lights were considered, but they would only have made congestion worse.
