Road works

Each year we carry out regular maintenance works to keep our roads around the district in tip-top shape.

Well-maintained roads are an important part of keeping people safe. While we aim to do this work with as little disruption as possible, we know that roadworks can be inconvenient. Thank you for your patience and understanding while we do this important work.

Local roads throughout Kāpiti are resurfaced with chipseal or asphalt between the months of November and March every year. During resurfacing work, traffic management plans are put in place to make sure there is as little disruption as possible to road users. 

Please drive carefully through work sites and stick to the temporary speed limits.

Current programme of work



From Tuesday 6 to Friday 16 June the Council will be carrying out road maintenance and resurfacing work at night on Kāpiti Road and Raumati Road in the following locations:

• Kāpiti Road between Arawhata Road and Rimu Road

• Kāpiti Road between Arco Place and Friendship Place

• Raumati Road between Rata Road and Matai Road

There will be some disruption while this work is carried out but Council contractors aim to keep noise to a minimum. Traffic management will be in place between 7pm and 5.30am each night to enable works to progress.



Work to widen Waitohu Valley Road to address safety concerns raised by residents through the 2016/17 Annual Plan process will get underway next week.

The work to widen the road will be carried out in stages and is expected to be complete by late August. There will be some disruption while contractors work to widen the road but this will be kept to a minimum and traffic management will be in place at all times.

NOTE: Roadworks are dependent on weather and other factors. If bad weather should strike, work will be postponed to the next suitable night.
