We regularly carry out 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 roadworks can be inconvenient and frustrating. Thank you for your patience and understanding while we do this important work.
Local roads can be resurfaced with chipseal or asphalt, and while we do this work we put traffic management plans in place to make sure there's as little disruption as possible to road users.
Please drive carefully through work sites and stick to the temporary speed limits. Most of this work is weather dependent so we’ll keep you in the loop if anything changes.
RAUMATI ROAD MAINTENANCE AND REPAIRS
Now that Expressway construction traffic is off Raumati Road, we need to do some work to repair the road surface between Rimu and Rata Roads. We've carried out some works to repair this section, and we'll need to come back in July to finish off a small section near Rata Road. We'll let you know more about this closer to the time.
GENERAL MAINTENANCE - DAY AND NIGHT WORKS
Here's an outline of our upcoming road maintenance and resurfacing work:
Where and when:
POPLAR AVENUE SHARED PATH IMPROVEMENTS
We’re upgrading the footpath on the north side of Poplar Avenue between Matai Road and Glen Road to provide a safe and consistent shared pathway for people travelling to and between the Raumati South Village, the Mackays to Peka Peka Shared Pathway and the Te Awa o Whareroa Cycleway in Queen Elizabeth Park. The project involves removing the existing footpath and replacing it with a new 2.5 metre shared path. This improvements are expected to be completed by August.
TE MOANA ROAD/PARK AVENUE INTERSECTION UPGRADE
We’re upgrading the Te Moana Road and Park Avenue intersection to improve pedestrian and cyclist safety and accessibility. The work involves shifting the existing bus stop eastwards and installing a central refuge on Te Moana Road to improve pedestrian and cyclist access across Te Moana Road to Greenaway Road.
The kerb line at the Te Moana Road and Park Avenue intersection will be moved to reduce traffic speeds and make it safer and easier for people to cross the road. Work to upgrade the intersection is expected to be complete by August.
WAITOHU VALLEY ROAD WIDENING
Work to widen Waitohu Valley Road to address safety concerns raised by residents through the 2016/17 Annual Plan process will are underway.
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 strikes, work will be postponed to the next suitable day or night.
We're also carrying out a range of improvements down Raumati Road to align with Kapiti College's changes.
