Council is advising people to take care around Raumati Beach School next week with term two beginning and improvement works to the area continuing.
“We’re still working on a new shared path, footpath and changed parking layout so people are advised to use the new Kāpiti College performing arts centre carpark when dropping kids off at school and picking them up to limit congestion as much as possible,” Group Manager Infrastructure Services, Sean Mallon, says.
“People should take extra care travelling around the school area and leave a little earlier for drop offs and pick-ups if possible.”
“Pedestrians can still use the existing footpaths on Raumati and Weka roads, but need to be careful when walking past work sites,” he says.
Works are also continuing at the Hillcrest Road/Goldsborough Avenue intersection where a roundabout is being constructed and additional traffic management will be in place next week for the start of the school term.
“Drivers exiting the performing arts carpark might want to consider turning right into Hillcrest Road rather than left to avoid the intersection. The distance to detour to Raumati Road via Matai Road is further, but may not take much longer time-wise given traffic will be slow at the intersection,” Mr Mallon says.
“We’re working as hard as we can to get the improvements finished and appreciate people’s patience with the disruption caused by the works. Once finished, the improvements made will better serve the needs of all Raumati Road users.”
