Kāpiti Lights improvements

Our work to upgrade the Kāpiti Lights area aims to make it more pedestrian friendly which will help create a setting that supports new and existing shops to thrive.

The improvements we are making, with the support of Kāpiti Lights property owners, will provide:

  • better connections between Rimu Road, Coastlands and Kāpiti Lights
  • better pedestrian access and spaces for people to sit and relax
  • quality lighting to improve the environment and safety.

The original concepts for the Kāpiti Lights area discussed in 2014 and 2015 have been adjusted to accommodate budgets. The private owners of buildings and businesses in Kāpiti Lights are partnering with Council to pay for this work.

Work to upgrade the Kāpiti Lights area will begin week of 15 May 2017. We are delivering the upgrade in three parts;

A: Coastlands/Kāpiti Lights connection;

B: Coastlands parade upgrade; and

C: SH1 entrance upgrade (linking to the transport hub).

You can view the larger picture upgrade plans here.

Construction will start on the first two projects in May 2017 and is planned for completion in October 2017. Brian Perry Civil are our contractors on site.

Hours of work will generally be between 7.30am and 5pm weekdays and Saturdays. The work will involve digging, paving, planting and other general improvements.

The SH1 entrance to Kāpiti Lights upgrade will happen as part of the SH1 programme of work later in the year.
