Work to upgrade the footpath on the north side of Poplar Avenue between Matai Road and Glen Road is underway. The project involves removing the existing footpath and replacing it with a new 2.5 metre shared path.
Infrastructure Services Group Manager Sean Mallon says the upgrade aims to provide a safe and consistent shared pathway for people travelling to and between the Raumati South Village, the Mackays to Peka Peka Cycleway, Walkway and Bridleway and the Te Awa o Whareroa Cycleway in Queen Elizabeth Park.
Work to deliver the new shared path is expected to take around two to three months, weather permitting. Traffic management is in place to ensure motorists, pedestrians and cyclists can travel safely alongside the worksite.
The Poplar Avenue footpath upgrade forms part of a package of shared path improvements the Council is delivering through its Stride ‘n’ Ride Kāpiti Coast initiative to make it safer and easier to walk and cycle around Kāpiti.
