Summer roadworks update surfacing

Kāpiti Coast District Council plans to take advantage of the expected improvement in weather to complete its annual resurfacing programme on local roads and is reminding drivers and footpath users to keep an eye out for traffic management signs throughout the District.

Neil Williams, Roading Network Performance Team Leader, says that during the programme, surfacing and chip sealing will be done in almost 40 different streets, on about 20kms or 5 percent of the 410km network Council manages, starting on 26 February, weather dependent.

“We’ll be letting residents in these locations know before work begins, but it’s important everyone stays alert for changes on the roads while our contractors are working, usually between 7am and 7pm on weekdays. Traffic delays will be kept to a minimum,” he says.

The latest rounds of works locations are available on the Council’s website –
