Road works

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.

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

Current programme of work

December - January

RE-SURFACING THE MAZENGARB ROAD ROUNDABOUT

When:  TBC

Work to repair and re-surface the roundabout at the intersection of Mazengarb Road and Guilford Drive will be carried out on Thursday and Friday this week.  Traffic management will be in place to enable contractors to carry out the work safely.  Please allow a little extra time for you journey and take care in the area.

 

KĀPITI ROAD/HURLEY ROAD FOOTPATH IMPROVEMENTS

When:  Underway

We're widening the footpath on the north side of Kāpiti Road from the east of Hurley Road to Tudor Court to a 2.5 metre shared path.  Pram ramps and a traffic island will also be installed in this section to make it safer and easier to cross the road and connect with the shared path on the south side of Kāpiti Road.

Traffic management and footpath diversions are in place to help keep people safe.

 

POPLAR AVENUE/LEINSTER AVENUE RIGHT TURN BAY

When: Underway. These improvements are expected to be complete by early 2018

What: We’re widening the shoulder on the south side of Poplar Avenue to make room for a shared path on the north side of the road.  This will make it safer and easier for pedestrians and cyclists to connect with the southern-end of the Mackays to Peka Peka Cycleway, Walkway and Bridleway.

Work will get underway in earnest early next year and traffic management will be in place to enable the work to be carried out safely.

TE MOANA ROAD SHARED PATH IMPROVEMENTS

When: TBC

What: We're widening the footpath on the north side of Te Moana Road in Waikanae between the Expressway Interchange and Park Avenue to a 2.5 metre share path.  Before work to widen the existing footpath can commence Electra will need to remove two overhead power poles and underground the services outside 199 and 203 Te Moana Road.  This work is likely to commence in early January.

 

NGARARA ROAD SAFETY IMPROVEMENTS

When:  Early 2018

What: We're widening the central island/refuge and upgrading the pedestrian pram ramps at the intersection of Park Avenue and Ngarara Road.  We're also improving the access to the Russell Reserve to help improve sight lines.

 

STABILISING THE WATERFALL ROAD SLIP

When: TBC

What: Waterfall Road has been closed at Mackays Crossing and the bottom of Maungakotukutuku Road, cutting off access between Emerald Glen Road and Valley Road since 11 September due to the risk of material coming down the hillside.Around 2,500 truckloads of material will need to be moved to help stablise the hillside and the Council is awaiting further engineering design and assessment before making any decisions on when the work can commence.

Once work gets underway there will be further assessment of the underlying rock in the area after the fallen soil has been cleared, to ensure the risk of future instability is at an acceptably low level.

 

SHARED PATH IMPROVEMENTS - KĀPITI ROAD FROM OCEAN ROAD TO MARINE PARADE

When: TBC

What: We're extending our Kāpiti Road shared path improvements from Ocean Road to Marine Parade, just opposite the entrance to Mclean Park.  This will involve establishing a central island and pedestrian (pram) ramps on Kāpiti Road outside number 384, widening the existing footpaths outside number 391 Kāpiti Road and 1-3 Marine Parade to a 2.5 metre shared path and shifting the bus stop outside 389 Kāpiti Road 12 metres to the west.

Traffic management and footpath diversions will be in place during construction to help keep people safe.
